Reviews for Butterscotch Pecan Cookies
"These cookies are AMAZING!!! I added 1 cup of butterscotch chips and the dough held together just fine. I will DEFINATLY be making these again!"
"I do a tremendous amount of baking during the holidays and I thought this recipe would be a quick one to use. I spent more time squeezing the crumbs together and trying to manipulate them into balls than I would have if I had made cookies from scratch. The flavor is good but next time I make them I will add a 1/2 tsp. caramel flavoring and make them when I have a lot more time. This is an update to the review of the recipe. I was not happy with the results of the batter the first time I made these cookies. I made them again today but I added 1T half and half and a half tsp. of caramel flavoring with the first five ingredients and the results were amazing! The dough rolled into balls easily and held together well. I rolled the balls of dough in sugar before placing them on the cookie sheet. I will use this recipe many more times!"
"Made these cookies for the residents at work! Many compliments!"
"I was just looking for any easy recipes, and boy am I happy to find this one! Just took them out of the oven. Real good! I can't wait to make them for the residents at work. I wonder if these cookies would be as good made with sugar-free pudding."
"These cookies are delicious and so easy to make. Will make often for church coffee hour."
