  • 4 cups of sifted flour sifted before measuring
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder leveled
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 3/4 cup of butter or margarine not spread
  • 1-1/2 cups of sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup of butterscotch chips
  • 1/3 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup of grated flaked coconut
  1. Cream your butter with the sugar until fluffy in your large mixing bowl.
  2. Add your eggs, one at a time and beat in the creamed mixture along with the vanilla.
  3. Slowly add the sifted flour, baking powder, salt and mix through until all the dry ingredients are incorporated with the creamed mixture. This makes a smooth, stiff dough.
  4. Grease a baking ban about 15 x 10 x 2-inch for a fatter bar cookie like a brownie or use a larger size for a thinner bar.
  5. Bake in a 350-degree oven for about 20-25 minutes, depending on how your oven is regulated. If you are using a larger size baking pan, adjust your oven time to about 15-20 minutes.
  6. The top will be slightly golden brown. Test with a toothpick, slender knife or cake tester to see if anything sticks.
  7. Allow to cool briefly in the pan (about three to five minutes) before scoring.

  8. ENJOY!
