I had a family size (30oz) roll of cookie dough so I doubled the recipe except for the amount of chips used. I used 1 cup butterscotch chips and because I ran out, 1 cup of chocolate chips. These were good, I think I am not wowed by the combination of PB and Butterscotch though. My sister loved them, and I made them for her, so I still give it 4 stars. Thanks!
