This was one of my mother's favorite cookie recipes, and she baked dozens of these for carry-in dinners. From the kitchen of Wanda Cupp Thornburg, Moberly MO.
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 3⁄4 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄2 cup chopped nuts
- Melt butter and add brown sugar. Let cool.
- Add all remaining ingredients and mix well.
- Put into greased 9"x9" pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes in 350 degree oven. Do not overcook.
- Cool slightly and cut into 1"x3" bars. Cookies should be moist and chewy, so keep them in an airtight container.
Mmmmm, chewy and butterscotchy and delicious! I made these plain (without nuts or chocolate chips) and baked them in a buttered 8x8 pan. I can see that they'd be thin in a larger pan. Easy to mix in one saucepan and finished baking in 21 minutes. These are tops! Thanks TLC-MO!
I doubled this recipe because i also wanted a brownie like treat. I baked them for 45 min and the edges were great but the middle a mushy buttery mess. Tasty but not a repeat.
Made this for New Kids on the Block. Very good flavor. I'm not sure what size they are supposed to be but mine were very thin. I was expecting them to be more like a brownie but they are more like a cookie.
