I have to say I have mixed feeling when it comes to these Butterscotch Blondies.

In my kitchen there is a lot of baking going on. All kinds of recipes from the easiest and fastest to the most elaborated and complicated ones. But no matter what comes out of my kitchen, these butterscotch Blondies are the biggest crowd pleaser.

Which is a bit frustrating since this recipe is SO EASY and fast.

Every time I bake this recipe it’s because I need something fast and simple. But still, this is the one dessert all hands are reaching out for. Over and over again.

So this one is a keeper!

Storing the Blondies:

Best is to store the blondies at room temperature in a sealed container for up to 4 days. Also, you can freeze the blondies for up to 1 month.

Few more notes about these Crazy easy Butterscotch Blondies:

  • You can bake this recipe in a 9″x13″ for 18-22 minutes or even use a 7″x11 for 25 minutes.
  • When you melt the butter, please cut it into few small pieces. This way the butter will melt evenly.
  • You can skip the Whiskey/Brandi and use milk or cream instead. I found that it helps the flavors come together.
  • Very important not to over mix! If we over-mix the recipe will be cakey, we don’t want that. (main reason why adding the eggs before the flour)
  • The Blondies are ready when the sides are browned and the top is golden.
  • This recipe freezes really well when stored in a freezable bag.

    This sounds DELICIOUS! I love butterscotch, but definitely don’t bake with it enough – and I also love the touch of whiskey 😉

    Hello! Can’t remember who led me to this recipe, but I’m glad it happened. Question about this drool-worthy recipe: amount of butterscotch chips is 1 cup (170 g/6oz.). Amount of chocolate chips is also listed as 1 cup, but weight (340 g/12 oz.) is double what’s listed for butterscotch chips. Please clear up this confusion for me! Thanks, Cheryl

    1. Dikla

      Hi Cheryl, 1 cup is 170 g, that was a typo. Hope you enjoy the recipe.

    Hi sounds delish. One question In the notes it says to not over mix. That’s why flour is added before eggs. But in the directions it adds eggs then flour. Should the directions be reversed?

    1. Dikla

      Add the eggs when the butter and sugar mixture is cool enough, then add the flour mixture.

Leave me your lovely thoughts
