Pecan Butterscotch Blondies

We went to America a few weeks ago for a holiday to celebrate J's significant birthday. We had a brilliant time and it was also a good opportunity for me to stock up on American baking goodies. I bought a few bags of butterscotch chips as I love the flavour and really enjoy baking with them. However, my favourite combination is still butterscotch and pecans so I decided to make some blondies with them. The flavours work really well together and they were quite addictive! I brought this along with the Irish tea bread to work but these were devoured much quicker. I'm sure I will be getting repeat requests for this one!

  1. I love those butterscotch chips and have used them myself in the past. We both have butterscotch themed posts today - spooooky 😉

  2. These look so good, right up my street. I need to get my hands on some butterscotch chips!
