Notes

  • Try leaving the mixed nuts whole instead of chopped for another beautiful mixed nut cookie.
  • Be sure to generously spray the bottom of sides of a 13 x 9 inch baking dish. The butterscotch topping is sticky, and this allows for easy removal from the pan.
  • The dough for the bottom layer tends to be crumbly; press it evenly into the pan. 
  • Use a double boiler to melt the butterscotch topping or make your own double boiler with a small saucepan filled with water and a glass bowl nestled on top.
