These butterscotch cookies are perfect holiday cookies for decorating and have melted butterscotch chips baked right in.

I too ripped this recipe out of a magazine in 1993 and have been making it every Christmas since then. Yes the dough is sticky even after chilling. I find keeping the dough in the fridge and just rolling out a small amount with plenty of flour is easier. Adding more flour makes the cookie tougher and not as good.
I had a great collection of cookie cutters that were gathering dust because I've found most cut-out cookie recipes so difficult to work with--until I found this recipe. Maybe it's the addition of the butterscotch morsels that makes the dough almost like working with playdough, but whatever it is, it's fun to work with and makes a delicious cookie.
I've also been making these for years. The dough can be just a little tricky, but the flavor is so much better than any other cut-out cookie. I recommend adding 1/2 tsp salt to the recipe.
Been making for years. They work great and can be rolled out many times.
Have had this recipe since ripping the ad page out of a magazine in 1993. it has been my GoTo cut cookie recipe ever since! The butterscotch makes it stand out from the rest of the regular sugar cookie cutouts and the cookies are "tough" enough to handle travel and shipping, yet have that chewy bit of texture to them as well.
I had this recipe for a few years. It is simple to make and soooo delicious
My mom used to make these for me over 20 years ago... so I've been eating them for over twenty years and now make them for my family! Best cookies ever!!!!
This cookie had the very nice butterscotch flavor promised. However, in spite of chilling the dough overnight, it was still sticky and difficult to work with, requiring frequent re-flouring of the board, rolling pin and cookie cutters. If I made these cookies again, I would add 1/4 to 1/3 cup of additional flour to the dough.
I have made this recipe the past seven years. I love it. It has a delectable flavor, if you love butterscotch
We made these for every holiday when I was a kid, and now that I have my own home, I make them as well. They always get rave reviews and if you have kids, thy love to decorate them. Small ones make great bite size treats. They taste AWESOME and have a nice soft/chewy texture and great butterscotch flavor. It's hard to keep from eating all the dough when you are making them!
It was an involved recipe, but totally worth the effort. I am butterscotch crazy and these were my second favorite cookie of the season! And I wasn't alone...
Very good! Great for making at Christmas to add to goody boxes!

Once the temperature drops a few degrees, I’m in full-on fall foods mode. Pumpkin bars, apple crisp, cranberry bread…you name it, I’m making it. However, most of it revolves around sweets. Why doesn’t dinner get a fair chance?
