Just got done baking a regular batch and then did another with butterscotch chips instead of chocolate. Mmmmm mmmmm good!

I substituted chopped, toasted walnuts for the candy-coated milk chocolate pieces and added 1 1/2 tsp. of pure vanilla extract. I flattened the cookies a bit with a fork dipped in warm water, and they spread out nicely. These cookies have become a favorite recipe with my family and friends.
