Butterscotch Cashew Bars

These thick, chewy bars are rich and satisfying. They have a place on my Christmas cookie trays every year!

1½ cups flour
¾ cup packed brown sugar
½ cup butter, softened
¼ tsp. salt

½ cup light corn syrup
1 11-oz. pkg. butterscotch chips (2 cups)
4 T. butter
2 T. water
½ tsp. salt
3 cups cashew pieces

Preheat oven to 350º. Spray a 9″ x 13″ pan. Combine crust ingredients with a mixer until you have coarse crumbs. Press firmly into the prepared pan. Bake for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile combine all filling ingredients except cashews in a microwavable bowl. Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes, stir, repeat until smooth and blended. (OR melt over low heat in a pan on the stovetop, stirring often.) Stir in cashews. Spread filling on the partially baked crust and bake another 10-12 minutes or until bubbly and just starting to brown. Cool completely. Cut into 20 squares, and cut each square into 2 triangles.
