"Gooey brownie-like texture. Can mix the whole thing right in the pot for easy clean-up."

"I have made this recipe several times. It is easy to make and the bars get plenty of compliments!"
"These tasted good, and were gooey and brownie-like as advertised. However, they didn't taste like butterscotch, which was disappointing. They tasted more like brown sugar bars. I might make these again though... thanks MaeEast!"
"Good recipe. I added butterscotch morsels, which made it even better."
"Wonderful and easy...how much better could it get? I modified them a bit using gluten-free flour and they still were delicious. Thanks for a keeper!"
"These were a big hit at a NYE party. One guest even asked if they could take the leftovers home (um....NO!....but you can have a few, lol) Several people asked for the recipe. I'd say that makes them a winner! The only change I made was to add a bag of white chocolate chips. I also added the optional nuts (walnuts)."
"Yikers, these are really sweet and rich. Very easy to make. Warning-they are very flat and dense. Just eat a few at a time, because I ate a whole strip and got a tummy ache. Good for a major sweet tooth."
"Turned out well. Very, very rich. I had some leftover butterscotch chips, so I added them to the mix. I did undercook them a bit, so they were gooey (luckily that's the way most folks like them)."
"I loved this- and I do not like buttersctoch. I added choc chips and PB chips to half (no nuts) and my kids loved it. The other half was plain w/out nuts. I thought it was good. I was suprised Hubby did not like this at all. So since some of my house loved this and some did not- I did not put any stars. Also I doubled this recipe but forgot to double the baking powder. It was a little flat but still good. "
"We've never had these before, but certainly loved it. Very interesting texture, crunchy top layer, sof middle and the bottom was a bit like a thin pie base. I made it without nuts - I didn't have any- but will defenitely make again. Thanks for sharing this one."
"Didn't work for me. I didn't have 1c. brn sugar, so used 1/2c. brn and 1/2c. white w/ about 1T. molases. Wouldn't recomend this substitution because of the bad flavor it got. Didn't turn out the best either"
"I was looking for easy but good recipes to make for a special family occasion, and this was so highly rated (and seemed so easy to make) that I knew I had to try it. I was happy to discover that this is indeed worthy of a 5-star rating. The squares are delicious, and so simple to prepare. I made this plain, but might add nuts or something else to jazz it up in the future."
"These were so easy and fast for such a great tasting treat. I added pecans. These are added to my xmas cooking for this year ~Tammy"
"These were AWESOME!!! I did not have an 8X8 pan so I made them in a 7X11 glass dish. I did add some extra flour & sugar and use an X-large egg (because the pan was bigger). Just to be extra daring, I added a 1/2 cup butterscotch chips and used a cup of chopped walnuts... oh this was JUST what we wanted! Who knew that walnuts and butterscotch are so perfect together?!! The Butterscotch addict in the house went nutz over these bars... and, if i wasn't before... I am certainly now... his hero! Thanks MaeEast for posting this recipe!"
"Yum... Let's just say that I had a craving for something sweet and this hit the spot! Mom thought that these were the best butterscotch bars that I've ever made! The only thing I changed was that I didn't add nuts."
"so AWESOME! I couldn't tell you how many times I yearned for a brownie but didn't really want chocolate! These absolutely fit the bill! I added a cup-ful of pecan chips to the batter. This bar has the classic brownie texture with the crackly top but with the gooey center. So addictive! I will be making these again probably until I'm dead! Thanks MaeEast, love em'!"
"I made these without nuts.I tried to do it all in one pan but transferred the melted mix to a cold bowl to speed up the cooling process.I cut them into squares--but I cant tell you how many as they were being eaten as I cut.Absolutely delicious ,sweet but not sickly and incredibly moreish!!!"
"These bars are awesome! I added chopped pecans - I cut the bars in the 8" square pan 4 slices one way and 5 the other way to yield 20 bars, just a good size for small rich bars. Yummy!!!"
"Yumyumyum! Getting ready to make another pan of these! Thanks, MaeEast!!"
"These were delicious and my family practically ate them all in one sitting. The yield was not nearly 25, I think I got 16 small bars at the most. These are nice and moist,with a nice flavor that's not overly sweet. I will have to make a double or triple batch next time!:)"
"SO easy and SO good! I did add nuts, a 'baker's mix' of 4-5 different chopped nuts. Thanks Mae, this is definitely a keeper!"
