Butterscotch Bars w/ our Mexican Vanilla

You have heard us talk about this special vanilla and we certainly think it is the best! Stop by our kitchen and pick up a bottle! It also makes a quick and easy gift for the cook in your circle. This recipe came straight from the distributors of this wonderful Mexican Vanilla!
“I have tried many Mexican vanillas – my mother in law even brought me some from Mexico that she purchased from a pastry chef when she went on vacation! Your vanilla is simply the best – that’s why it’s the only vanilla I buy.”

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar

1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup chopped nuts
