    I tried this recipe 2 weeks ago and have made it so many times. every time I share it I am asked for the recipe.I did not have yellow cake mix and I used buttered flavored. then I tried the yellow and my family loves the buttered flavor the best.I wish I could give it 10 stars. I think I will try it with chocolate cake mix with chocolate chips.

    My family loves this recipe. We like to mix and match the add-ins (rather than 1 C cashews I'll sometimes add miniature chocolate chips). Yummy! I use a 13X9 glass pan and cook for 28 minutes.

    What a wonderfully easy, rich cookie! These will definitely show up on my Christmas cookie platter. The butterscotch and the cashews were a tasty combination. Made for My 3 Chefs.


I love food! I collect cookbooks and recipes and read them the way most people read novels. I have no children but I have two cats who also love to eat. I am also a movie buff and one of my biggest pet peeves is when people talk during a movie!
