A little after school snack

I wanted to try out this yummy treat today so I baked up a batch for the kids to enjoy when they got home from school! They were so delicious. The hubby even liked them as an after work treat as well... ;0)

Butterscotch Blondies

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
2 cups light brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup nuts (optional) , I chopped some pecans in my mini-food processor
2 Tbsp. confectioners' sugar

Cream the butter and brown sugar in a mixing bowl. Add the eggs and beat well. Add the flour, baking powder, salt and vanilla and mix well. Stir in the nuts. Pour into a greased and floured 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Bake at 35o degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until a wooded toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove from the oven to cool. Sprinkle with the confectioners' sugar and cut into squares. Serves 16.

Thanks Ladies! These were really good! I have to say I liked them better the first day still semi-warm...today, not so much! But what I really like about them is that they remind me of the chewy pecan cookies that the Cookie Company sells...YUMMO! Well worth the try!
