Heat oven to 350°F. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking dish with aluminum foil. Coat with nonstick cooking spray. Stir together flour, salt and baking powder in a small bowl. Melt butter in a large bowl in the microwave oven at 100% power for about 90 seconds or in a large saucepan over low heat.

Prepare swirl:
Melt butterscotch morsels in a medium size bowl in the microwave following package directions or in the top of a double boiler over simmering water; stir until smooth. Stir in flour and cream cheese until blended. Scrape into plastic food storage bag, pushing mixture to one corner; snip off 1/4-inch from one corner. Squeeze cream cheese mixture in a decorative pattern over the top of the brownie mixture. Swirl with knife to blend mixtures in a marble pattern if desired. Bake in 350°F oven for 25 minutes or until center is just firm to touch. Cool brownie completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into 20 bars.
