Butterscotch Blondies

2 cups light brown sugar
1 1/4 cup flour
2 eggs, at room temperature
6 tablespoons butter, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour or spray with cooking spray with flour one 8 inch square baking pan. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, throughly combine the sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture until just blended. Pour batter in pan. Bake 40-50 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the middle of the pan comes out almost clean. It may seema little gooey in the middle but it will set up as it cools. Cool in pan on wire rack then cut and serve.

My thoughts:
A great dessert for those crazy people who prefer their sweets devoid of chocolate. These blondies are butterscotch-y and slightly chewy.
