True confession here. I love sweets and all my life I’ve loved to make desserts that are stirred in a bowl and then plopped into a pan. Easy AND sweet. So these butterscotch brownies have been in my repertoire for years and continue to be a guest favorite. Now that diabetes has entered the picture, I try to refrain and just enjoy a bite instead of an entire brownie, but that’s a challenge! Every afternoon at Lookout Point Inn we serve a homemade dessert, light appetizer, two types of wine and tea for our guests.
