Recipe Box, Butterscotch Bars

HHjr and his crew are here this week doing a condo remodel and he’s getting them lunch everyday from local hot spots.  I made them these super easy cookies to munch on during their breaks

One, two, three, four ingredients!

Mix the beaten eggs and melted butter with dry cake mix

Add the butterscotch chips

You will have a stiff dough

Spray a 9″x13″ dish with cooking spray and then line in with a piece of parchment paper.  The spray will hold the paper in place

Place the dough on parchment paper in dish and spread it out into an even layer, using the back of a large spoon or your fingers…as I said the dough is stiff!

Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes

Let cool in pan, then gently lift the baked dough out of pan holding the edges of parchment paper

Cut into bars or squares

Now give these away quickly before you eat them all!
