You just need 10 minutes to whip up these easy butterscotch cookie bars loaded with brown sugar and butterscotch chips. Best served with ice cream!
Close your eyes for a minute.
Chewy butterscotch cookie bars. Imagine these little butterscotch blondies fresh from the oven with a scoop of ice cream melting on top. Oh, and don’t forget the butterscotch ice cream topping.
Are you drooling yet? If not…are you breathing?!!
Butterscotch tends to get left behind.
But when you’re looking for an easy dessert to whip up? This chewy butterscotch bars recipe is the answer. Just 10 minutes. Simple ingredients. A little too easy.
Just a hint when you’re making these bars. I recommend under baking them just a little bit. The recipe calls for baking the bars at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. I tend to bake them for no more than 30 minutes, but they will be a little underdone inside. If you want them firmer, add that extra 5 minutes to the baking time.
Also, I like to cut these bars shortly after they come out of the oven. They tend to get hard to cut and remove the longer they sit in the pan.
My last hint?
Serve them with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. And maybe a drizzling of butterscotch sauce. The butterscotch cookie bars will be a hit. I promise.
