Bri needed a treat to take for the bake sale portion of the evening and didn't want to be boring and do brownies so we needed something new. Something delicious. Something that everyone and their dog wouldn't also be bringing. I remembered a picture of some bar cookies that I saw somewhere on the internet that looked fabulous but I couldn't remember what it was called or where I saw it, just that it had butterscotch chips and butterscotch pudding in the cookie part. So, I improvised and here's what I came up with. When I got it there I didn't have a name really for it so the girls named it Heavenly Deliciousness. :) It was pretty heavenly and definitely delicious. It was really rich so small pieces work better than giant ones.
Servings 36 (small bite size)
1 pkg sugar cookie mix (this is when it paid off to be a compulsive grocery shopper....)
1 pkg instant butterscotch pudding
1 cube butter, softened
1 pkg Kraft caramels, unwrapped
1/2 c. evaporated milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 c. cashew pieces
1 1/2 c. butterscotch chips
1. Mix sugar cookie mix, butterscotch pudding, butter and egg together until a dough forms.
2. Turn into an ungreased 9x13 baking dish and press out evenly. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes until crust is firm.
3. While the cookie is baking melt the caramels with the milk over med heat until smooth. Add vanilla and nuts; stir well.
4. Pour over cookie crust. Sprinkle butterscotch chips over the top. Let cool completely before cutting.
