heat oven to 350. if using butter, margarine or shortening, melt over low heat. remove from heat; stir in sugar until blended; cool. if using oil, just blend oil and sugar. stir in egg. measure flour by dipping method or sifting. stir flour, baking powder and salt together; blend in. mix in vanilla and walnuts. spread in a well-greased square pan, 8x8x2. bake 25 min. do not over bake. cut in bars while warm. makes 18 bars about 2 1/2 x 1".

recipe from betty crocker cooky book

my notes:
of course there are bunches of cookie recipes from my beloved cooky book that have become family favorites. and ok, so there have been some recipes that are just so-so but this is the first one that is a real fail. perhaps i'm judging them too harshly. the texture is nice, that really good fudgy brownie texture. but i was hoping for a better butterscotch flavor i think. not my favorite...not at all. sorry betty.

That's why it is safer to stick to being a brownie purist! I don't believe in doing anything crazier than throwing in a handful of pecans/walnuts or chocolate chips! :)

Miss you!
