  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter at room temperature
  • 1 and 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
  • 2 whole large eggs
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter morsels

  • 1/2 cup roasted chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of orange zest (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Line a 7" x 11" baking pan with baking paper.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.

  • Add the flour mixture in three batches, mixing after each addition.
  • Fold in the nuts, peanut butter morsels and dark chocolate morsels.
  • Pour into the prepared pan (the batter will be heavy), scraping the sides of the mixing bowl. Smoothen the top for even thickness.

  • Cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool some more.
  • Cut the butterscotch brownies into two-inch squares.
