The Cooky Book: Butterscotch Brownies
The Recipe: Butterscotch Brownies from Betty Crocker's The Cooky Book.
The Substitutions: Omitted nuts and made the coconut version.
The Verdict: After months of bland drop cookies, these were a real treat to make. They were so easy -- I mixed them with a spoon and then just poured them into the pan. So easy. And they're actually pretty good. Everyone in the family agreed that chocolate brownies would have been preferable (what is with Betty Crocker's aversion to chocolate?), but the children have been eating them up with glee. And the best part about bars (or as they call them in these parts, squares) is that the batch is small, so I can move onto something else sooner rather than later.
