These Butterscotch Chocolate Chunk Cookies are an indulgent mouthful, just like the title!
Our Thanksgiving weekend is upon us! And for some of us, friendsgiving comes right before the real turkey festivities. These cookies make the perfect friendsgiving dessert because they yield a substantial serving. Also, everybody loves cookies.
Let’s face it; it can be a mouthful saying Butterscotch Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Heck you may even get tired or fall asleep halfway through the sentence. But when you sink your teeth into these cookies, everything changes. Although these cookies aren’t exactly “healthy” on the calorie scale, they are worth every bite. After all, a little indulgence here and there doesn’t hurt. Plus, it’s Thanksgiving!
These cookies have been a hit with the crowd so far and that makes me happy. These butterscotch babies are also great for potlucks, themed parties or even care packages. I will also be adding these cookies to my catering page, so you will be able to get these delivered to your doorstep if you live in the GTA!
