I had seen these cookies in my google reader and knew I had everything on hand to make them, so I thought they would be great to take to a potluck picnic that we went to on Monday night. These turned out so great. They were so soft and chewy. If you love butterscotch, you are going to love these. I found these on Good Thymes & Good Food and she got the recipe from Family Circle Magazine. These are actually Cindy McCain’s recipe that was entered in a contest for the magazine during the election. This recipe makes about 5 dozen. I halved it, but the full recipe is below.
