Butterscotch Oatmeal Brown Butter Cookie Bars
We made these the day the recipe came out on Picky Palate's blog. We had all the ingredients on hand and they tasted wonderful.
1 stick unsalted butter (equals 1/2 cup)
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all purpose Gold Medal Flour
1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a 8×8 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
Melt butter into a small skillet over medium heat. Let bubble and cook until browned bits form at the bottom of pan and butter turns golden brown. Transfer to a heat proof bowl and let cool for 10 minutes.
Place browned butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar into a large bowl. Mix until well combined. Stir in egg and vanilla mixing well. Add flour, oats, salt, baking soda and butterscotch chips, mixing until just combined.
Transfer dough to prepared baking pan. Press evenly and bake for 25-30 minutes, until baked through. Let cool completely then remove bars with parchment paper and cut into squares. Serve room temperature.
