These are the quickest, tastiest cookies I've ever made. They can be varied endlessly, but I come back to this version time after time. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 6, 2014

I have mixed feelings about these cookies - they were quick to put together and satisfied the initial craving, but weren't really drop-dead delicious and the next day they just tasted crumbly and like 'package mix'. Don't think I would make them again.

OMG! These cookies just melt in your mouth!! Please try them!! For the butter portion---you must go by the markings on the butter stick.... Do not use just a measuring cup....... That might be why some of the ladies here didn't have too much luck. But I made a double batch when I made these.

MY REVIEW

I was excited to try these because I love butterscotch. Super easy to make the cookie dough - BUT, I was so disappointed with the end product. This recipe definitely needs something. It has a butterscotch taste, but I agree with the reviewer that said it was like having a mouthful of dry pancake mix. This recipe will be going in the trash.

MY REVIEW

I followed the recipe just as it stated and while the cookies were soft and chewy, they had no flavor and a bad after taste. Definitely a fail and I won't be making these again.

I truly wish I had read ALL of the reviews before I mixed a double batch of these cookies. I took one bite and felt like I had a mouthful of pancake mix. I'm truly glad I didn't waste my box of pumpkin spice instant pudding mix.
