Butterscotch Cookies Recipe

Butterscotch Cookies
I haven’t baked in a while and I had the craving for some cookies, butterscotch cookies that is. This is a simple and very easy recipe that uses butterscotch chips, butter, and sugar to give the cookies great flavor. They were so good that as I am writing this article there is none left! This recipe uses crispy rice cereal to make the cookies perfectly crispy with a little crunch but yet still slightly chewy making the texture great. Be sure not to overbake them because they will get kind of hard if you do. There are so many great ways to make cookies and if you haven’t tried butterscotch chip yet give this recipe a try! Enjoy.

I made these last night. I swapped out half the butter for half as much yogurt and the texture was still perfect! I think I will cut back significantly on the sugar next time as the chips are already so sweet. Also thinking about trying cinnamon chips. But this is a terrific recipe, thank you! The Rice Krispies are a brilliant idea and make the texture so perfect, they add a lovely lightness and crispness to them. My kids love them! I blogged them as well.

Made 2 batches of these cookies this morning. Delicious. I though it was too sweet so I cut the sugar down to 1/2 C instead of 1 C.
