Easy Butterscotch Brownies

You will need:
Large mixing bowl
Medium bowl
12 x 9 baking pan
mixer or wooden spoon

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 cup butter or margarine (softened)
2 cups butterscotch chips (divided)
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

2 eggs (large)
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350*. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Beat softened butter, sugar and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl until creamy. Use mixer on low or mix by hand. (Wooden spoon works best for me) Add eggs and continue mixing.

Slowly add flour mix and beat well. Add 1 1/3 cup of butterscotch chips and the nuts. Pour into ungreased 13×9-inch baking pan and smooth out with spatula. Add the remaiming 2/3 cup of chips to the top of the batter.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10-15 minutes before cutting. Enjoy!
