Outstanding! We love these. The only change I make is light brown sugar instead of dark, and bake at 375 degrees.

Really nice flavor. I baked them and then froze them and the flavor seemed to get stronger after they were thawed. Made these for our local Fair and I won first prize! Great recipe.

Very good Butterscotch cookies! Just what I was looking for. I did follow others advice and turn the temp down to 375 and the cooking time down to 10 mins and they turned out perfect!

Excellent. Doubled the recipe and froze the rolls overnight. We had a cookie baking party and these sliced great. Cook until only light brown and they keep better without getting quite so crunchy.

Not a huge taste of butterscotch, even after I added in butterscotch chips. But a HUGE hit, my grandfather loves them!
