Total Time:35 minutes
½ cup (113 gm) unsalted butter, at room temperature
¾ cup (150 gm) packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup (130 gm) all-purpose flour
¾ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup (175 gm) butterscotch chips
¾ cup (75 gm) chopped pecans
Extra salt for sprinkling, if desired
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly spray an 8” square baking pan with baking spray.
In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter and brown sugar together on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and beat to combine. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt and stir until just combined. Fold in the butterscotch chips and pecans. Sprinkle with additional salt, if desired.
Spread the mixture into the prepared pan and bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted just barely comes out clean. Do not overbake. Slice and serve!
