Austin's Peanut Butter Butterscotch Chip Brownie Cookies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by mary winecoff

My 11 year old invented this recipe for a "older" woman. She is in 8th grade and he was trying to woo her with his cooking. I don't know if it worked but the cookies were fantastic! This uses a brownie mix as a base.

Delish cookies! Austin should have won the girl! I am proud to be the first one to rate these delicious cookies. Made exactly as stated except my brownie mix was 18.25 ounces. I added the melted butter in after the peanut butter. Mine baked in 11 minutes 30 seconds and made 60 cookies. Thanks for a great recipe. DH raved and raved about them.
