Butterscotch Bars

Makes 16 2 1/4 inch squares

1/4 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon double-acting baking powder

3/4 cup sweetened coconut

Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir the brown sugar into the butter, and then set aside to cool slightly.

Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 9x9-inch pan.

When the butter/sugar mixture has cooled slightly, beat in the egg and the vanilla.

Sift the flour, then re-sift with the baking powder and salt. Mix flour mixture into the sugar mixture. Mix in the coconut.

Pour batter into the prepared dish and bake for 20-25 minutes. Cut into bars when cool.
