I love blondies, or butterscotch squares, which is what we called them growing up.  They are so versatile, a simple bar cookie, or change it up with chocolate chips, coconut, nuts, anything really. :) This recipe is super easy, and it's really tasty.  My favorites are still the corners, so nice and chewy, just like I remember. :) 

Funny thing about this recipe, I totally forgot about the whole, melt the butter and add in the sugar thing that is typical for blondies, and it still tasted incredible.  So, you know what, I'm leaving that step out, because it's less work for me. :)
