Rich Butterscotch Bars

From Jefferson, Wisconsin, Kathryn Roth notes, "My husband works second shift, so I spend a few nights a week baking just for fun. He takes half of my sweets to his co-workers, who frequently ask for these tasty bars."

    Quick and easy to make and the family loves it. I do switch it up, making it one time with the graham crackers and the next time I use saltines.
