Chocolate Chip, Butterscotch, and Walnut Cookie Bars
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. sea salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar (I used dark brown)
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup walnuts, chopped (toast for even more flavor)
1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish.
2. With an electric mixer on medium, cream butter, sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk to combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. With the mixer running on low, gradually add the dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and walnuts by hand.
4. Drop dough into the prepared baking dish and spread with a spatula until even. Bake in preheated oven for about 18 minutes, until the edges and top are golden brown. Cool on a wire rack before cutting into bars and serving.
Fills a 9x13 pan.
