These cookies have been a favorite in my family for years! We almost always make them as bar cookies by spreading the dough in a 9x13-inch pan, and put in one package of butterscotch chips. These cookies are unique and delicious!

These are awesome! I made them for all my friends and they raved about them! I was actually looking up the recipe today and noticed I didn't post a review. This is a keeper!

This is exactly like the Nestle package; aside from the margarine. I agree, using unsalted butter always produces a better tasting cookie! I used 1 cup each of chocolate and butterscotch chips. Yum!
