I'm not rating these right now, as I made a mistake; I baked @350, in a glass dish. I should have dropped the temperature by 25 degrees, but I was trying to make them quickly as I had company coming. They were a little 'done', but still tasty. I also threw some white chocolate chips on top, as I had a few extra to use. The taste is great, but would probably be better, if I had remembered the 'baking rules.' Really enjoyed the taste of the butterscotch chips! I have some cinnamon chips, and may add a few of those next time. I will make them again, and re-review then...Sorry, Baby Kato, but thank you for sharing this delicious recipe.

Fabulous slice !!!! Delicious and addictive. As we cannot get butterscotch chips here I just doubled the choc chips, also I used double the nuts and had to use almonds as I had no pecans but it was an all round success.

The toasted pecans are the best part! I really loved this, but my son didn't...too much butterscotch for him. I was going to substitute Heath Bar Chips for a better toffee taste. I made them as stated in the recipe, and really enjoyed them. I am going to try it with Heath Bar Chips next time. By the way, I call them a cookie bar. I made this for Market Tag game.
