Butterscotch Bars

These are thick and dense and best served, in my opinion, with a big scoop of toffee ice cream!

Butterscotch Bars

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 1/2 brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 350° F
For thin bars grease a 9x13 pan
For thicker bars grease a 8x8 pan
In a large bowl cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer
Add egg and vanilla and beat until batter is light and smooth
Scrapping the sides of the bowl periodically
Blend in flour, baking  powder, and salt
Stir in pecans, chocolate, and butterscotch chips
Pour batter into prepared pan and level with rubber spatula
Bake in center of oven for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean but center is still soft
