Butterscotch Cookies


Butterscotch Cookies
I've been meaning to post these cookies for a few weeks now but the chaos that is the summer holidays has  got in the way of my blogging a bit. Thanks to my lovely Mother and Father though I have an afternoon of peace and quiet (I doubt they are having such a relaxed time) and am busily catching up with emails and blog commitments.

Now...these Butterscotch Cookies are super sweet - the kind of sticky sweet that leaves you rushing to clean your teeth afterwards, but also dangerously moreish too (one or two aren't going to do much harm). I can also reveal, after a bit of experimentation, they make ideal cookies for ice cream cookie sandwich's - it has to be plain vanilla though. They keep for about 3 days in a sealed container, but they wont last that long.
