In reviewing this recipe I didn't see much in the way of butterscotch going on here, so rather than struggle to make this cookie live up to its name I just worked with what I believed to be a nice cookie dough more interesting. (Butterscotch flavor, in my mind, might have meant one of more of the following ingredients: browned butter, scotch, dark brown sugar, or even butterscotch extract) I reduced this to a one egg recipe by scaling it down to 40 servings. I added 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon of salt, then stirred in one cup of cinnamon chips. Cookies that have cream of tartar in the ingredients list always catch my attention because I like the cookie it produces and this one did not disappointment. It is a wonderful cookie - sort of crunchy on the outside and sort of soft on the inside - and definitely cinnamon-y with good buttery flavor. While I added cinnamon and cinnamon chips, I think other flavorings (like maple extract) or chips (chocolate,of course!) would be fine additions too. Plain or with additions, this is a good, old-fashioned cookie jar cookie.
