  1. In current weather conditions, EVERY day should be a cookie day!

  2. The cookies all look delicious, but the butterscotch ones, Mmmmmmm! I love butterscotch!

  3. I have had those butterscotch chips in the frig for a long time now. The original recipe called for chocolate chips but I just can't see doing cocoa with chocolate so I went with the butterscotch. They really are very, vERy good!
