    Chef Patience's Note:

    Easy, yummy cookie. I make these for the holiday cookie exchange, but I felt so guilty for making such an easy cookie, I didn't make them one year. The next year I was asked to please make them again, people were asking for them.

      I made this with the butterscotch chips and we liked them a lot. I don't think they really taste too much like butterscotch so I think even if you were not a big butterscotch fan you might like them. At least a half dozen people at the potluck asked "who made these?" and made a point of telling me how good they were. I din't tell them how easy they were to make.

      My family usually devours sweets within a day or two. These stayed around so long I had to throw some out. Easy? Yes. Tasty? Nothing special.
