I make these as part of my Christmas goodie packages. Love them but they are hard to cut.

This bar tastes so GOOD! I love the chewy texture and strong nut flavor mixed with the butterscotch. I ended up baking them for about 18 minutes because at 12 minutes it looked like the crust wasn't cooked through enough for my taste. I was worried when I poured the nuts over the crust because they didn't completely cover the crust. I used my fingers to spread them out as much as I could but they were about 1/2" shy of the edge of the pan. However, during baking they spread completely to the edges and turned out just great! Very tasty and makes quite a bit.
