Had a good week and a good time at farmer's market yesterday. I made about 39 pot scrubbers to take to market and to have on hand for future orders. Anyone need some?
Nick had a couple people interested in his meat flippers as he calls them. If we can just get some dry weather, he can happily forge away.
I tried a new recipe today called butterscotch brownies. Found it in my Betty Crocker's Cooky Book that I got at the local flea market last year. We had the book when I was a child and I have fond memories of making our annual gingerbread house every Christmas.
Anyways, I've been meaning to go to the store and stock up on some baking staples. But we haven't made a trip to the store yet, so I decided to get out this book and see if there was a dessert I could make with as few of ingredients as possible.
I have to admit, the name didn't sound too appealing since I'm not a fan of butterscotch. However, I'm so glad I made them as they were delicious. So much that we just consumed the whole pan!
Here is the recipe:
1/4 cup of butter, margarine, or oil.
1 cup of packed light brown sugar
(I found you can save money by buying dark brown sugar and then lightening it up by adding some white sugar to it)
3/4 cup flour
1 tsp. Baking powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
(which I omitted)
Heat oven to 350 degrees. If using butter, or margarine, melt over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in sugar until blended; cool.
If using oil, just blend oil and sugar.
Stir in egg. Add flour and rest of ingredients. Spread in well greased pan, 8X8X2. Bake for 25 minutes. Do not overtake! Cut in bars while warm. Makes 18 bars about 2 1/2 x1".
