Butterscotch Squares

–from the kitchen of Tom Paulsen, assistant professor agricultural education and studies (courtesy Grandma Janet Paulsen)


1 stick butter

2 cup brown sugar (packed)

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 eggs

1 ½ cups flour

2 teaspoon baking powder

Directions: Melt butter and brown sugar in saucepan on stove.  Let cool a bit before adding vanilla and eggs—if brown sugar is too hot, it will cook the eggs. Mix thoroughly. Then add flour and baking powder.  Mix thoroughly.  Pour mix into a wax paper lined 9” x 13” (two inches deep) pan and bake 25 minutes at 350°F.  Turn on to cooling rack.  Carefully peel off wax paper.  Cool slightly then place on cutting board and cut in squares while still warm.
