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!

Mmmmm, nobody can eat just one! I used 1 stick margarine, 1 stick butter. I reduced the butterscotch chips to 1 cup. I didn't let them stand on the cookie sheets a whole 2 minutes after removing from the oven - just several seconds, and it helped. They're delicious!

I love making cookies and I am always on the looking out for something new. This was one of those cookies. I loved the mix of oatmeal and butterscotch chips. I will definately make these again. They would be a great cookie for a bake sale, which is exactly what I did with some of these cookies.

These are awesome and really addictive! I made these for dessert for tonight and my dad ate them like a crazy kid! Haha! He loved these. For the first time I ever got butterscotch chips in my hands(thanks to my dear Uncle Miller on Zaar who sent me a RAK package that had a pkt. of these chips)and hence, I could give this recipe a try. THANK YOU, Uncle MILLER! I did substitute butter with margarine. Moreover, I used 1 cup of "melted" margarine and not softened. I baked these as muffins instead of drop cookies because, to be honest, I was short of the trays in which I bake as they had other Zaar goodies in 'em;). I baked these at 200C for 20 minutes(and I had pre-heated my oven to 200C). Another thing that annoyed me was my brown sugar turning rock hard that made a mess. To be honest, I had creamed the white sugar and egg mixture together, and I had put in the rock hard brown sugar to soften in my oven and heated it for 2 minutes. But, the minute I took it out and stirred it, it hardened like stone. The worst part was I had added it by then to the white sugar and egg mixture. So, I got so frustrated that I had to throw away that whole mixture. But, then, I re-started it from scratch, and this time, I used 3/4 cup + 3/4 cup of white sugar(the second 3/4 cup was a substitute for the brown sugar). All worked well this time:) Thank the Lord! Oh and I was halfway through making this, when I realised that the butterscotch chips packet contained butterscotch chips equivalent to only 1 2/3 cups and not 2 cups! So, I grated and added in Lindt dark chocolate(a little over 1/2 cup) and proceeded with the recipe as directed. My house smelt like a bakery while these baked:) These are wonderful. I even packed 3 of these for one of dad's co-worker's family who is leaving for India tomorrow. This was a special food gift for her from Zaar! I'm so glad I tried these, thanks so much for sharing!
