  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a Spray a 13x9 inch pan with cooking spray. Set aside. Using two sheets of parchment paper, line the pan’s width and length, creating a parchment “sling.” Spray the parchment paper with cooking spray.
  • Get out and measure your ingredients.
  • Ideally, using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the butter, brown sugar, and salt for 1 or 2 minutes, until smooth.
  • Reduce speed to low.
  • Add the flour. Mix until incorporated.
  • Press dough evenly into your prepared pan. Poke holes in the dough all over with a fork. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until the crust is a golden color.
  • In a heavy saucepan, over low heat, stir together the butterscotch chips, corn syrup, and water.
  • Stir until the mixture comes to a simmer and the butterscotch chips are melted.
  • Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
  • Pour over the crust.
  • Smooth to the edges so surface is covered.
  • Sprinkle the cashews over the butterscotch caramel.
  • Bake for 5 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • After cooling, remove from pan and use a very sharp knife to cut into bars.
  • Serve and enjoy every bite!


  • An electric mixer is your friend for this recipe. It makes things so much easier.
  • Make your butterscotch sauce on low heat so you don't scorch it.
