Delicious! I licked the beater clean too while making the dough. I made the cookies this morning and had some tiny tots come over who said "mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm gimme more" for these cookies. Thanks a tonne for your timely help on making cookies and for sharing this fantastic recipe!
yummy, yummy, yummy UPDATE: I used whole wheat flour this time - they are really good.
These are good!! I used half the amount of butter and then made up the other half with unsweetened applesauce. The results were great! Next time I might cut down a bit on the sugar. Thanks for a great recipe on Zaar day!!!
These were great cookies...extremely yummy. I too used greaseproof paper on the cookie tray...and I like my cookies smallish...kind off bite size just cos I don't feel so guilty...and it made me 6 and a half dozens of them. Crispy around the sides, and chewy close to the middle...good stuff. next time, I might use half a cup of butter, and half a cup of shortening, just so that they don't flatten out so much in the oven. Other than that...they were WONDERFUL!! Thanks Erin!
Thanks to the reviewer for the idea to use 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce & 1/2 cup butter in place of the 1 cup of butter. It worked wonderfully for me. I baked mine for only 6 minutes & they were done. I also decreased the butterscotch chips to 2/3 cup instead of 2 cups & I got more than enough of their sweet taste! Thanks for the recipe.
Very good cookies! They're lighter than most chip cookies because of using two eggs instead of one. Easy to make and a lovely treat for guests.
I am not usually a fan of butterscotch but I had some butterscotch chips leftover and tried your recipe. These were great! Love the soft texture in the middle. I used about 1 1/2 C of the butterscotch chips and thought that was quite enough. Loved it, and will make this again. Thx Erin!
I made these with 1 cup of butterscotch chips and 1 cup of chopped pecans. They were sooo awesome! .. not too sweet and perfectly delicious! These will definitely be one of my regular recipes from now on. Thanks for posting.
I use this as my keystone recipe for any kind of cookie that has candy in it. I just sub the butterscotch for chocolate chips or mint, etc. Its really handy because I make a huge batch of plain dough and then add whatever kind of candy bits to it to make lots of variety. Saves time, and they turn out perfect every time!
We really loved these cookies. My husband shared them with one of his classmates. The friend asked if it was my "specialty." He said no, she just made them last night for the first time. Thanks for making me look like an old pro!
