    Annacia's Note:

    Dry-roasted cashews add a salty spin to classic butterscotch-chip cookies. Warning, these can become addictive! I've made them fairly diabetic friendly but the regular ingredients are also given.

      We love snacking on salty roasted cashews, so this recipe was a definite draw for me, & the butterscotch/cashew combo was so very satisfying! I did share half of 'em (along with half of another batch of cookies)with those in one of the weekly meetings my other half attends, but we had plenty to keep us going right here at home, too! And, I have the recipe that I'll be keeping around, too! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
