Butterscotch Blondies

I have a butterscotch lover in our home, that would be my husband Rich.  He absolutely loves anything and everything that is made with butterscotch.  And that leaves a slim window to work within, since there is not much at the market to pick from.  Basically you can get butterscotch pudding or butterscotch ice cream topping and that's about it for the selection.  So, this left me to get creative and find somewhere to put it in with my holiday baking for him.  Santa's gotta have his favorite cookies, right?  I have always seen the butterscotch chips in the baking isle, but never really knew what to do with them.  So, I figured that I would just throw something together that was simple, easy and right up his alley.  And these butterscotch blondie bars are just that.

14 T. of real un-salted butter (1 and 3/4 sticks)
1 cup of light brown sugar (packed)
1/3 cup of sugar
2 eggs (that have stood at room temperature for at least 20 minutes)
2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 tsp. of baking soda
4 dashes of salt
1- 11oz. package of butterscotch chips

-Preheat your oven to 350*.  Grease a 9x13" baking dish; set aside.  Using an electric hand-mixer in a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and both sugars together.  Once it is nice and creamy, beat in the eggs, one at a time.  In another small mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and the salt.  Add this to the butter mixture in small batches, making sure to thoroughly combine it before the next addition.  Then just fold in the butterscotch chips, spread out in your greased baking dish and bake for 30 minutes.  Makes 30 bars.  Enjoy!
