Butterscotch Brownies - 3 points

I am sooooo tired tonight, I didn't even manage to get a worthy picture of this delicious dessert bar for you. Please do not judge this amazing, rich, buttery treat by its poor photo. I crave butterscotch brownies - or blondies, as they are sometimes called - and the addition of coconut and pecans is like adding gasoline to the fire of my butterscotch brownie passion. 

Butterscotch Brownies
1/2 cup flaked coconut
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1 3/4 cups brown sugar
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
2 large eggs, slightly beaten
2 tsp vanilla

1. In a medium bowl, mix dry ingredients. In a large bowl, cream the butter, eggs, and vanilla using an electric mixer on medium speed.
2. Add dry ingredients to the large blow, stirring until mixture is well blended.
3. Spread the batter into a lightly greased 9x11" cake pan. Bake at 375F for 25-30 minutes.
4. Yields 24, 3 point servings


Why am I so tired, you may be thinking (if your mind has not gone off into the lovely land of daydreaming about baked goods)? I lost my mind and volunteered to teach Vacation Bible School this week. Even though I am tired, it is a good tired:) I love the VBS theme - Shake It Up Cafe - I mean, it's all about food. How could I not love that? And I love the dances that go with the songs - there is a whole lot of shaking going on.

  6. Great recipe and I am old enough to remember the young crazy Gerry Lee Lewis; He was a hit at our teenage dances. I enjoyed that video Angela.

  8. Butterscotch passion, huh? I'm totally with you on that. I spent the evening watching old CSI episodes and munching butterscotch chips. I too, was very tired. That's my excuse for the sloth :)
