    OK, I am NEVER making these cookies again - unless I double the recipe first!! These are sensational, but let's face it, 24 bites just aren't enough. The only thing I changed is to use a whole egg instead of just the white (for no other reason except I was too doggone lazy to do the separation - came out fine!). Just try to eat one of these devilish little bites - DH will be asking for these again, and my cookie expert friend already asked for the recipe - high praise indeed! Thanks, Jenshie!

    What a simple easy to do cookie recipe. These would be great in a gift package at holiday times. That is if you can keep them long enough to wrap up!! Thank you Jenshie

    Don't even think about making this recipe unless you double or triple it! They are soooo good!!!!! Thanks for posting a recipe I'll be making again and again!

    These are SO GOOD, and SO EASY... I just can't rave enough!! I made them during the Cookieathon and just never got around to reviewing until now - "now" being made super important because I just made a double batch and am in heaven all over again. I don't quite understand why Myrna 2 thinks they are a little messy to make because I found the dough to be exceptionally easy to work with. Not too stiff, not too soft or sticky. My DH loves peanut butter so I put PB chips in half and they are just FABULOUS!! Thank you Jenshie for a top-notch recipe :)

    I thought these cookies were easy and quick to prepare. They tasted good for a "light" cookie. I think peanut butter chips would also may a good substitute for the butterscotch.

    I made a big mistake in making these... I forgot to double the recipe! ;) They were gone in a flash! Simple to prepare, and I ended up using white chocolate chips instead of butterscotch. I dare you to eat just one. Update: I just noticed that my review was voted unhelpful. I'm not sure what else I can add that would make it helpful, but I will do my best. I thought the recipe was concise, and I had no problems following it, whatsover. I'm sorry that I used white chocolate chips, but I'm afraid that it was all I had on hand at the time. I do intend to go out and purchase butterscotch chips the next time I make these, as I think it would be a fantastic combination. I found the cooking times to be perfect, and the resulting cookies were chewey and luscious, and I can't wait to make these again. hth- :)

    These were wonderful, I too immediately doubled the recipe. And NO REGRETS. The cookies are actually very small. So don't worry about them disappearing. I actually felt that double of the recipe was still NOT ENOUGH!! I used bittersweet chocolate instead of butterscotch chips.
