I love butterscotch. It has such a completely different flavor than caramel. This cookie recipe is easy and the only thing you'd really have to have special is the butterscotch chips. If you're a butterscotch lover like me, a bag of those little chips always stay on the pantry shelf. It is different, has cocoa powder in it. Number of cookies depends on the size of your tablespoon!

These cookies are very simple and so chewy which is good because we love chewy cookies. I added a bit more butterscotch chips and left out the nuts. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Wonderful butterscotch flavor. I think the Cocoa was the key. Really easy and fast! I am adding to my Permanent Cookie list. Thanks so much for sharing!

Very good and convenient! I got about 40 cookies using a #100 scoop. I did not use the cocoa powder, but I did add in about a tablespoon of molasses. They didn't taste like they were made with a cake mix. I will definitely be making these again in the future.
