With its big butterscotch and chocolate flavor, my cookie stands out. I like to enjoy it with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee. It’s my fallback recipe when I’m short on time and need something delicious fast. —Allie Blinder, Norcross, Georgia

"Really easy and tasty, although a little too sweet. While I will make them again, I won't use the toffee or and only half of the butterscotch chips"

"Wow! This made a great cookie! Prepared according to directions, except replacing chips with chopped pecans. Perfect color and rich texture. With smaller cake mixes becoming more popular the oil amount may need to be decreased slightly. As a volunteer field editor with Taste of Home I enjoy recipes that can be quickly put together and still deliver a great treat!"

"These were so easy and delicious. I used walnuts (didn't have pecans as they would be delicious also) instead of butterscotch chips. I really think the butterscotch chips would make them too sweet. They're perfect with the nuts."

"What could you substitute for the butter pecan cake mix. I don't think I have ever seen that flavor, at least not around here. Or maybe use the butter recipe and add butterscotch pudding to it like they did below?"

"First off, I have never written a review for anything, but at least a year ago I came across thisvery simple, easy recipe and I needed cookies in a hurry, so I had everything and I made them,but I used chopped pecan pieces, and toffee bits, everyone raved about these cookies, and without a lie, I make a batch every week and give them away to someone, DO NOT overcookthese cookies, I take them out at 11 minutes, and I get great results everytime.Enjoy , so easy.. 5 stars

Oh, most important I add a box of butterscotch pudding........."
