Homemade butterscotch is a staple in the repertoire of most Amish bakers. With ingredients that consist of such baking basics, butterscotch is an an easy and irresistible sweet. Butterscotch can be used to flavor brownies, cakes, puddings and candies. My question: who DOESN'T like butterscotch?:) Just be careful when cooking it on the stove-top to keep stirring so it doesn't scorch, while nothing tastes better than butterscotch, few things smell worse than scorched 'scotch. Below is a recipe from the Amish recipe archives for these delicious treats!
- 1 /4 cup butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 /2 teaspoon salt
- 1 /2 cup nuts
- Melt butter in a pan over medium heat.
- Add brown sugar and stir for 1-2 minutes, until it has a thick, peanut butter-like consistency.
- Let cool, then stir in beaten egg and vanilla, followed by flour, salt, and baking powder.
- Once combined, stir in nuts.
- Spread the batter into a greased 9×13 pan and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes, or until edges begin to brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
- Cut into squares while warm and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
- Place leftovers in air-tight container.
