This is an easy and versatile recipe that even a novice baker can make. I've made it twice recently, the first time using butterscotch chips and tonight I used caramel/chocolate swirl chips. Both turned out great. Thanks to nestie bakingblonde for introducing me to this great recipe!
8 TBS butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla or 1/2 tsp. almond extract
1 cup flour
Preheat oven to 350.
Butter an 8x8" pan.
Mix melted butter with brown sugar-beat until smooth. Beat in
egg and thenvanilla.
Stir in flour.
Mix in any additions (some ideas below).
Pour into prepared pan.
Bake for 20-25 minutes (err on the side of caution, do NOT
overbake these babies) or until set in the middle. Cool on
rack before cutting.
Add in ideas: add 1/2 to 1 cup of the following in any flavor
combo you can think of.
1/2 to 1 cup chocolate chips or butterscotch chips/white chips etc,
