Butterscotch cashew bars were one of Amy Scherber's favorite after-school snacks when she was a child. Oddly, the version she makes today at her beloved New York bakery, Amy's Bread, are even more popular with adults. Perhaps it's because it takes a more sophisticated palate to appreciate the perfect balance of sweet, salty, nutty, and chewy flavors. Then again, maybe it's because they bring out the kid in you. And what grown up doesn't crave that?
