Thank you so much for posting this recipe. Mine is a Better Homes & Gardens recipe and is packed away. These brownies are the easiest to make and I've been making them since 1981. The ingredients are simple and usually on hand. I made a double batch at 11pm last night...yummmy
Butterscotch brownies have always been a favorite of mine. The recipe I've used in the past called for oil I believe -- these are much better with the butter or margarine (moist but not greasy). I doubled the recipe and sprinkled a full cup of chopped walnuts on top of the batter before baking. YUM!!
