Never in my life have I made a better cookie! Thank you so much for ths recipe! When I saw the mix I thought I had done something wrong because it looked alittle dry to me, but when they come out of the oven they look perfect. Soft, flaky, and tasty snack!!

I had extra butterscotch chips and used the ingredient search to stumble upon this recipe. I really liked these cookies. They had a nice crispy texture with a little give to them. They were sweet but not too sweet with just a hint of the butterscotch flavor. Everyone at worked like them too and asked for the recipe.

doctored the recipe a bit: I uses half brown sugar and half white sugar, then added a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg. I'm soo amazed these cookies didn't crumble due to the lack of eggs! I love these cookies!

Very crispy and buttery,, the dough was a crumbly buttery mix but the cookies baked perfectly in 10 minutes. I added some white chocolate chips on 2nd batch which added some flavor. These would probably be good with some raisins and peanut butter. These cookies came right off of the sheet (no pam needed!!)

I was looking for a change from my old stand by oatmeal cookie recipe so decided to try this one. I learned that I do not like the addtition of butterscotch chips in an oatmeal cookie. I think that is definitely a personal preference, but as it is such an important part of this recipe, it factors in my review. I also thought these were a little heavy on the butter as they were rather oily and flat.

I liked these cookies but the recipe didn't quiet work how I thought a cookie recipe should. Next time I will let the batter completely cool before backing. (I got giant flat cookies with the warm batter). Reduce the amount of butter to about 1/2 cup (they were very oily) and play around with adding on egg and some more flour. Despite their flat greasy texture they were very tasty. I did however add 1 tsp. Vanilla, cinnamon and allspice.
