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.

Really tasty cookies! The oil and butter do give them a wonderful texture. Used Guittard butterscotch chips (yum), 2 t maple extract, and Heath bits as directed. I omitted the nuts but next time will use either chopped walnuts or pecans. The cookie base is not overly sweet, even so, the cookies were very popular with my house full of boys. This makes a large batch of cookies which is perfect since I store cookies in the freezer to pack in school lunches/keep myself from eating all of the cookies.Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This has to be THE most phenomonal recipe for cookies that I've ever had- when I was in 9th grade, we made the best choc chip cookies in home ec, and silly me, I never hung on to the recipe- after decades of searching for a great cookie base that wasn't flat like the tollhouse recipe and most others, I finally found it! Kittencal, you have some of the best recipes on this site-thank you!

Amazing indeed! HOLY smokes this make a alotta YUMMY cookies! Despite my lack of planning for ingredients, these cookies turned out great. I used dark brown sugar, had to use a bit of cake flour, and combined butterscotch & choco chips, hold the nutz! I think the kiddies will really enjoy these, if not, more for me! I think I already ate my weight in raw cookie dough. OINK! I baked for 10 minutes because the cookies did not spread but remained nice and tall! They are very tender almost like a shortbread.

This recipe solves the problem I have with my kids liking their cookies done differently. It is so good that my "crispy cookie loving" daughter actually ate one and then ate more. The only problem I had with this recipe is that despite not looking like so, the dough was rather dry and I had to shape the cookies by hand to get the chips to stick to the dough. I had fun and used different chips. A total keeper. Thank you for posting.

Great Cookie. I cooked for 9 minutes and 30 seconds. Next time I might had some oats. Thanks for the recipe.

These were very good. A lot of ingredients and not really inexpensive to make. I guess I feel that I get just as good of taste with several other recipes I have (and I have tried several of yours Kittencal because they are always good) without the extra cost. Followed recipe and I did add the skor, I think that it really did add to the flavor. Tasted good right out of the oven and several days later. A lot of cookies. Would recommend to try but not a regular cookie for me to make-a special occasion. Thanks for posting.
