I've started thinking about making homemade goodies for the holidays and I searched this site for a butterscotch schnapps recipe and didn't find one. I found this elsewhere on the web, from a cookbook called Cordials From Your Kitchen. Gonna start a batch tomorrow! (Had to guess on the servings and cook time)

Yummy! Made one batch with butterscotch extract and no brandy and one with brandy and butter flavoring, and both came out pretty similar. Very yummy- thanks!
