Reading Renee's post (at Every Pot and Pan), she wrote:
However, I forgot Phyl's reminder that this recipe calls for salted butter. Salted butter is used so infrequently in recipes I make that I don't even look for it in a recipe. Nick Malgieri says, "to my mind, good butterscotch always has a hint of saltiness".Um, salted butter? Like Renee, I never even bother to look, always assuming that a recipe will call for unsalted butter.
Well, of course I had to try them the *right* way to see the difference! Besides, after hubby finished the last two scones yesterday, he said, "Um, you posted in your blog that these were really easy. Does that mean you could make them again soon?" And then he got really good news about his job today, so clearly we had to celebrate . . . right?
Unfortunately (not really!), I was almost out of butterscotch chips, so I had to (had to) use half butterscotch chips and half chocolate chips.
Oh me, oh my! Yes, it's possible they could be even better.
