Amazing Butterscotch Crispies Cookie

Total Time

This is the most *fantastic* cookie, the oil and butter produces a wonderful texture and taste, chocolate chips may be added along with the butterscotch chips if desired, the Skor toffee bits are only optional but I like to add them in ;-)

Amazing is quite right! These are absolutely delicious! Wonderful, crunch texture. I used 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp rum extract. Works beautifully with the butterscotch. Thank you!

Wonderful cookies!! Remind me of something you would get from a bakery! I made the exact recipe (omitted the nuts), but I used a large (ice-cream size) scoop because I needed large cookies! I flattened the dough (with the back of my scoop) before baking for 16 minutes. YUMMY! Thanks for the great recipe!

I made a couple of changes to this recipe so I guess these would be even better if I went exactly by the recipe.I used margarine instead of butter,next time I'll use butter.I also thought the 1 cup of oil was too much so I reduced it to 3/4 cup.This might be why my dough was kind of dry.But all in all it is still a very tasty cookie.A nice crisp outside but chewy inside.
