I really enjoy the flavor. I got 45 out of the batch. They didn't raise much & I had to turn my oven down to 325 or the bottom of the cookie got too dark. I also shortened the baking time to 11 minutes. I may make them again but think I will try baking soda instead of baking powder.

These were great! I used chocolate chips instead of the butterscotch. Just the right amount of sweetness.

I love everything about these cookies. Just sweet enough with a little bit of crunch.

I was hoping they would be a little sweeter. I was really disappointed at how plain they were I didn't really think they had much of a taste at all.

I was expecting them to be a "crunchy" cookie so was a little disappointed in the texture but they taste ok. Not sure that I would make them again though.

I think these are some of the best cookies I have ever had! I thought they might end up being too sweet after reading the ingredients, but they turned out perfectly! They have a very different chewy texture that I love and the flavor is amazing. :o)
