Butterscotch Blondies

Today we’re sharing a recipe for butterscotch blondies.  Of all the blondies, the butterscotch chip ones are on point!

There is just something about blondie cookies and bar cookies.  Everyone loves a brownie but blondies have their own special thing going on.  Then there is the ease of the bar cookie in that you don’t have to roll the cookie dough into balls but just press it into a pan and cut it after baking. Even better there are the edges that get the perfect crisp and center which stays a little gooey.

Then the butterscotch chips just put it over the top.  They perfectly complement all the other flavors going on in the cookie.  You could use other chips of course if you don’t like butterscotch or don’t have any. Milk chocolate, white chocolate, or peanut butter chips would go great in this blondie recipe but we really prefer the butterscotch chips.

When you want to do the right thing and make your family something homemade but don’t feel like making cookies. Whip up a pan of these butterscotch blondies instead and you’ll have a pan of bar cookies in under 45 minutes.

Simple blondie recipe with butterscotch chips

Author Sunup to Sundown


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips


  1. Combine butter with granulated sugar and brown sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Mix well.

  2. Add baking powder, flour and mix until combined. Fold in chips.

  3. Spread into a greased or lined 9 x 9 inch baking pan. Bake at 350F for 30-35 minutes until golden brown. Let cool before cutting into 16 small or 9 large squares.

These bar cookies keep well in an airtight container for a couple of days up to one week.  They never last longer than that in our house but would recommend sharing them, refrigerating them or freezing them if you don’t think you will eat them within that time period.
