  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and butterscotch chips. Stir frequently until smooth then stir one cup of the sugar, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Set aside. Grease a 9x13 inch pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, whip eggs with remaining 1 cup of sugar until thick and pale, about 3 minutes. Slowly add the butterscotch mixture to the eggs while mixing. Combine the flour and salt; fold into the batter until absorbed. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until firm. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.

I don't know what happened on this recipe. I followed the directions exactly and I ended up having to cook it 45 minutes longer than what the recipe said. It still was not quite done after all that time. I wish it would have turned out because the outer edges(that were cooked but hard as a rock) tasted very good. I might try it again and increase the temp. of the oven.

Same thing happened to me. The outsides were yummy, but the insides were undercooked and mushy.

I think I did something wrong when making this recipe. The batter was really runny, and when it came out of the oven, it was the consistency of butterscotch pudding. It was still really tasty, though. :-) I scaled the recipe down, so maybe something got lost in the translation. I don't know. I might try making it again with the recipe as is, because the taste of the batter was yummy!

I thought it was awful, nobody in my family wanted seconds that was for sure. I had to cook it more time than what it called for, I would not try the recipe again.

I wish I would have read the reviews before I tried to make these bars. It took over twice the time to bake these bars and they were still too gooey on th inside to get apart properly. I thought I had done something very wrong. I am glad it was not just me. I will not make these bars again unless someone has some advice on making the bars a more solid consistency.

This recipe was terrible. I wonder if the creator even tried it before they posted it. The mixture was very runny. I added and xtra cup of flour, and it was still too runny. I baked it for over an hour more than the baking time and it still wasn't all the way cooked. Flavor was good, but a terrible recipe. Will never make again.

This didn't turn out for me either. Even with 10 minutes more for baking, the filling was the consistency of a pie filling and the bars had to be eaten with a fork. The outside edges of the pan were nice and chewy. Won't make again.
