1 cup butterscotch-flavored chips
3 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 large Land O Lakes® Egg
2 tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
Decorator sugars, if desired

Melt butterscotch chips in 1-quart saucepan over low heat 3-5 minutes, stirring constantly, until smooth. Pour mixture into large bowl; add all remaining ingredients except decorator sugars and frosting. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.
Divide dough in half. Wrap each half in plastic food wrap; flatten slightly. Refrigerate at least 1 hour until firm.
Heat oven to 375°F.
Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/2-inch cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle with decorator sugars, if desired.
Bake 5-8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely; decorate with frosting, if desired.

These are our favorite!! We make them every year!!
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.
