I tried this recipe 2 weeks ago and have made it so many times. every time I share it I am asked for the recipe.I did not have yellow cake mix and I used buttered flavored. then I tried the yellow and my family loves the buttered flavor the best.I wish I could give it 10 stars. I think I will try it with chocolate cake mix with chocolate chips.

My family loves this recipe. We like to mix and match the add-ins (rather than 1 C cashews I'll sometimes add miniature chocolate chips). Yummy! I use a 13X9 glass pan and cook for 28 minutes.

What a wonderfully easy, rich cookie! These will definitely show up on my Christmas cookie platter. The butterscotch and the cashews were a tasty combination. Made for My 3 Chefs.
