Butterscotch Bars

This is the only bar left before I could snap a picture, that should indicate how good these were! These are from my newest favorite, Cooking Light Dessert book, and again, the recipe did not disappoint! Crispy on the top and moist and chewy in the middle! More or less, this bar is a blonde brownie topped with butterscotch chips and could easily be topped with chocolate chips or peanut butter chips and would be delicious!

Butterscotch Bars
From: Cooking Light Dessert

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 large egg whites
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Cooking spray
1/2 cup butterscotch morsels

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Beat sugars and butter with a mixer at medium speed until well blended (about 4 minutes). Add egg whites and vanilla; beat well. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir well with a whisk. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture; beat at low speed just until blended.

Spread batter evenly into an 8-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray, sprinkle evenly with morsels. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until a wooded pick inserted comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
