Heavenly Bites, Butterscotch Cookies

Raise your hand if you have a stick of butter, 1 egg, brown sugar, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda, salt and flour in the house. See! You are ready to bake and you didn't even know it.

I promise you can bake the most delicious cookies today with these basic pantry items. These heavenly bites are just like "Blondies," baked in a square pan and then cut out with a scalloped biscuit cutter.

Heavenly Bites

1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 t. vanilla
1/2 t. baking powder
1/8 t. baking soda
pinch of salt
1 cup flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter (or use vegetable spray) and flour a 8 x 8 pan (I like to use a silicone baking pan, which eliminates this step). In a mixing bowl, beat melted butter and brown sugar together. Mix in egg and vanilla extract. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix. Pour the batter into the pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Cool, cut into shapes and enjoy with a friend. Yum!

Ha! Now if you could just tell me the weight of "1 stick" then I could be in business. Some things don't translate across the Pacific without help. :)

Oops! Sorry, Mme!
A stick of butter equal 1/4 lb.
A stick of butter is 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup. Make these cookies - they are delicious!
