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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter and add brown sugar. Let cool.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients and mix well.
  3. Put into greased 9"x9" pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes in 350 degree oven. Do not overcook.
  4. 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.
