Mocha Butterscotch Cookies

I have never been much of a baker, but being a wife and mom is changing that. I came across a cookie recipe that sounded promising and made some changes to it to make it my own, and the result was a cookie that everyone has asked for the recipe for.—Alysha Braun, St. Catharines, Ontario
