INGREDIENTS

1 cup unsalted butter

1 cup powdered sugar

2 cup all purpose flour

1/2 tsp kosher salt

1 egg

1 cup butterscotch morsels
Instructions

In a small saucepan on medium-low heat, melt butter. Bring to a boil and allow to brown for 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat, allow to cool for a few minutes.



In a large mixing bowl, add melted butter with powdered sugar, mix completely. Add flour and salt. Mix together (will be crumbly). Add in egg and butterscotch, mix until completely combined.
Line a 15x10x1 baking sheet with parchment paper. Place dough on baking sheet and press (with palms of hand) to about 1/4 inch thick. Shape into a rectangle (doesn't have to touch side of pan). Mine was about 12x10.



Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove from oven and cool about 5 minutes. Using a sharp knife, make slices into cookies about 3inch x 1inch. Don't separate, allow to cool completely.



When cooled, separate cookie bars (using knife if necessary). Store in air tight container for one week. ENJOY!
