      I omitted the nuts and finished with chocolate drizzle and caramel sauce. Lined the pan with tinfoil for easy cleanup. I followed the baking advice and cooked the base for 8 minutes and the filling for 12. The middle wasn't set so I cooked until the edges were about to burn and had to take it out. Finished product was still raw in the middle so I cut off the cooked edges and had to throw the rest out :(

      Nice, chewy bar cookie. Definitely follow the other chef's advice and bake the base for only about 8 minutes and bake the filling for about 12 minutes. I did that and the bars turned out great. The butterscotch flavor is really nice.
