Bourbon Butterscotch Blondies

My husband has a new fascination with whiskey and bourbon. So when he saw this recipe in a recent issue of the Food Network magazine, of course he wanted to make these blondies. They came out as promised: sweet, chewy, boozey, and delicious.

Bourbon Butterscotch Blondies
Duff Bakes: Think and Bake Like a Pro at Home by Duff Goldman via Food Network

1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 stick of butter, softened
3/4 cup butterscotch chips
3/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar 
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup bourbon

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9-inch square baking pan with cooking spray or butter it generously. (You can also line the pan with parchment paper and spray it.)

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

In a small pan, melt the butter and 1/4 cup of the butterscotch chips 
over medium heat until the mixture is smooth. Transfer it to the bowl of a stand mixer.

Beat the brown sugar into the butter mixture and then the egg. Add the vanilla and bourbon and beat until combined. Add the flour mixture and beat until incorporated. Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup butterscotch chips.

Spread the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool before cutting.
