Butterscotch Cream Cheese Bars
Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
1 package (10 oz.) butterscotch chips
1/2 cup butter
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped pecans
In a medium saucepan, melt the butterscotch chips and butter over low heat. Remove from the heat. Stir in the cracker crumbs and mix well. Reserve 2/3 cup mixture.
Press the remainder firmly into the bottom of a buttered 13x9 inch ovenproof glass baking dish, making a uniform layer. Heat the oven to 325ºF.
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in the condensed milk, vanilla, and egg and fold in the nuts. Pour into the prepared pan. Scatter the reserved crumb mixture evenly over the top.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until the cake tester comes out clean. Cool to room temperature, then chill.
Cut into 1-1/2 x2 inch bars and serve.
