Picked up butterscotch chips and pecans on a whim, then looked up this recipe. Super simple and delicious. I did make a few adjustments. I didn't use the entire package of chips or pecans, just added until i thought there was enough.

These cookies are fantastic! I would give them 10 stars if I could. I wrote the other review, under Carol Main but forgot to give it the stars it deserves. Outstanding cookies.

Jolly, these cookies are very good! I can't think of anything that would improve them. I didn't think I liked butterscotch all that well till I tried some cupcakes with it and now your cookie recipe. I posted the cupcakes, PUMPKIN BUTTERSCOTCH SNACKING CUPCAKES #60805 and so far no one has tried them. You might like them since you like these cookies. Thanks for a great recipe and many others will thank you also. I'm taking them to a large 4 day building project in Homer, Alaska this weekend. Thanks again! Carol Main
