Dear SOS: I absolutely love the butterscotch brownie at Clementine in Los Angeles. It’s chewy and full of brown-sugary goodness -- the perfect afternoon treat or sweet for a picnic. I’d love to be able to make it at home. Would you be able to find the recipe for me?

Dear Mindy: Tender, rich and temptingly sweet, Clementine’s butterscotch brownies balance that brown-sugary goodness with a nice hint of salt to make this the perfect treat for almost any occasion.


Heat the oven to 325 degrees.


In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.


In a large bowl, stir the brown sugar into the melted butter. Stir in the egg, then the vanilla.


Stir in the dry ingredients, then fold in the nuts.


Place the batter in a greased 8-inch square baking pan and bake until set (a toothpick inserted will have moist crumbs), 25 to 30 minutes.


Cool slightly before serving.
