Rich Butterscotch Bars Recipe

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."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling YIELD:36 servings


  • 1 package (10 to 11 ounces) butterscotch chips
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 32 squares)
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


  • 1. Preheat oven to 325°. In a microwave, melt chips and butter; stir until smooth. Add cracker crumbs; set aside 2/3 cup. Press the remaining crumb mixture into a greased 13x9-in. baking pan.
  • 2. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in milk, egg and vanilla. Stir in pecans.

"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."
