Bushel of Cookies Recipe

Publisher Photo
This recipe turns out what seems like a bushelful of cookies—that's probably how it got its name. But watch out! They disappear fast in a crowd. The flavor of the raisins and pecans comes through in every bite, and the butterscotch chips add a deliciously distinctive taste.—Martha Schwartz, Jackson, Ohio
