Good butterscotch flavor can be elusive. Butterscotch isn’t quite the same as caramel, although they have elements in common. To my mind, good butterscotch always has a hint of saltiness, too. This butterscotch scone stands proudly alongside any butterscotch candy I’ve ever tasted, though it has significantly less sugar in it. Brown sugar and salted butter provide the right elements.
