A departure from the expected Christmas cookie and quickly prepared, everyone anticipates the moment the Butterscotch Brownies are cool enough to devour!

1/4 cup shortening, I prefer butter flavored
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup pecans, roasted, chopped

Preheat oven to 350° and grease an 8″ x 8″ x 2″ baking pan.

Mix well or sift together flour, baking soda, corn starch and salt. Heat the shortening over medium-low heat until melted and remove from heat. Add the brown sugar, egg and vanilla until well incorporated. Add the flour mixture and stir until all is moistened and add nuts until well mixed.

Spread batter into greased pan; bake for 25 minutes.

While still warm, cut into 1-3/4″ squares.

Yield: 9 brownies
