mouth-watering goodness of butterscotch

Mmmm....can you smell that?! Butterscotch-y goodness!!! After melting butterscotch chips and butter, I added brown sugar, then eggs, vanilla, and now flour/salt/baking powder. The kitchen smells oh-so-good! My mouth is watering -- is yours? I just have to finish stirring in the dry goods, then some walnuts, and bake at 350 for 30 minutes, and the butterscotch brownies will be done. It's imperative that I sample them before foisting them on guests, though, isn't it? It just wouldn't be right to let others run the risk of them not turning out good, would it? I think I'll have to take the only option and try them out for myself.

Well, the tops fell off several of the cookies, so there was nothing for it, but to put the kettle on, make some cocoa and call Ken to the disaster site. We put the poor cookies out of their suffering, prevented our guests from consuming less-than-perfect morsels, and satisfied our tastebuds.

I have to go put my cape in the laundry for its weekly washing. Life is good.

Okay, so now are you telling me that Ken also has a super-hero cape to wear when saving poor cookies?

Ken is my sidekick. His cape is slightly shorter than mine.
