  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup butterscotch morsels
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


  • BROWN BUTTER: Melt butter in a medium skillet over low heat. Continue to swirl the pan as the butter bubbles until the butter turns a dark golden color and takes on a nutty caramel fragrance. Pour into a medium-sized bowl and set aside to cool.
  • PREP: Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a 9-inch square pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
  • DRY INGREDIENTS: In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together and set aside.
  • WET INGREDIENTS: Add brown sugar to the bowl of melted butter and whisk together until combined. Then add the eggs and vanilla extract until combined.
  • COMBINE: Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and gently stir until just combined. Fold in the butterscotch chips and pecans. The batter will be thick.
  • BAKE: Spread batter into prepared pan in one even layer. Bake for about 35-40 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow the blondies to cool completely in the pan.
  • SERVE & STORE: Serve the blondies warm or at room temperature and keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 7 days.
