YUMMY! I love butterscotch anything so these were GREAT! I did use 1/2 cup regular butter and 1/4 cup shortening. I omitted the pecans because I was out but can see how they would be nice in this. They are nice and soft and puffy and intensly butterscotchy. I baked mine on greased cookie sheets for 10 minutes. I scooped the dough out with overflowing 1/2 tablespoons and ended up with 38 cookies for a half recipe.
