Are you gearing up for back-to-school yet? Have you been thinking about what to pack in a lunch box or have waiting for an afternoon treat with some milk and discussion about the day’s activities and adventures? Today I’m sharing Grandma’s recipe for Butterscotch Squares with you.
These are the easiest squares you could hope to make, and will delight anyone who has a bite. If you’re having a bad day, these will surely help brighten it up…but be warned…these melt-in-the-mouth bars are just so morish that it’s hard to have just one!
Butterscotch square ingredients
- 1/2 Cup melted butter
- 1 Cup brown sugar
- 2 Cups rolled oats
1) Mix all of the ingredients together.
2) Press the mixture into a pan to measure about 1/4 inch thick.
3) Bake at 330F / 170-175C for 10 minutes.
4) Cut while still warm so that they don’t crumble apart. And if this does happen to you – don’t worry, it will still taste delicious and be amazing sprinkled over ice cream!
I find the old-fashioned rolled oats are difficult to find here, but I have a box hidden in the back of the cupboard just for making these squares! Do you do the same with any of your ingredients? Please let me know I’m not the only one who does this! Leave me a comment below or send me an email, I’d love to hear from you!
Mom says that Grandma used to make these when they lived on the farm. I can just imagine the pleasure of walking into the house to the sweet smell of these after a hard day’s work. A fine treat indeed!
