I found this recipe while looking for something to make with a partial bag of butterscotch chips, so I went ahead and made it using those instead of the white chocolate. The butterscotch chips complimented the toasted pecans nicely. Very good. Would make again.

Delicious! Toasting the pecans is mandatory - adds a really nice element of flavour!! Cookies are chewy on the inside & crunchy on the outside. I just used Chipits white chocolate chips & that was fine, too.
