Butterscotch Brownies
Posted by: Elaine Mon, 9 Feb 2004, at 6:22 a.m.

1 to 2 teaspoons butter
1 tablespoon flour
For the brownies:

5 tablespoons butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat the oven to 325F. Butter and flour the sides and bottom of the 8-inch-square pan.

In the heavy saucepan melt the butter over low heat, then remove pan from the heat and use it as a mixing bowl.

With a wooden spoon stir in the brown sugar until well combined. Stir in the egg. Beat in the flour, 1/4 cup at a time. Stir in the baking powder, salt, vanilla, and walnuts, and mix well together.

With a rubber spatula spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan, scraping out all the batter with the spatula.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until the top is dry and the cake tester inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove the pan from the oven, wearing the oven mitts.

Let the brownies cool about 10 minutes, then cut them into squares.

Serving Size: Makes 25 Squares
