Recipe by Mary K. W.

A recipe I found in a community cookbook a while back. This is one of those 'I'll make this someday' recipes. I'm putting it on Zaar for safekeeping.

These were really good and a big hit with everyone. I made half with the butterscotch topping and the other half with some chocolate chips added in - they were both good, but I preferred the original version. I was afraid these would be overly sweet, but they were just fine. Thanks for sharing!
