Butterscotch Cashew Bars

These chewy bars have just the right mixture of sweet and salty with the butterscotch chips and the cashews. The dough will have a consistency a little thicker than brownie batter and may require a little extra flour. Make sure you let the bars cool since the room temperature bars tasted much better than the warmer ones.

3 Tbsp margarine
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup butterscotch chips
1/4 cup cashew pieces

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a loaf pan and set aside.
Cream together margarine and sugar. Stir in egg. Add flour, baking powder, and salt and mix.
Stir in butterscotch chips and cashew pieces. Spread mixture into loaf pan.
Bake for 18 minutes. Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes before slicing into bars.
Yields 8 bars.
