Fall Baking: Butterscotch cookies!

I have been making these semi-homemade cookies for years and everyone who enjoys butterscotch loves them!

Every fall the community I used to live in would have a community yard sale. I would make these cookies and sell them 2 for $1 during the yard sale. I sold out every time...never brought any back home. One year, there was a family who bought a few packs to snack on while they shopped. They made their purchases and left. Minutes later, they came back just to buy more cookies! They bought every butterscotch cookie I had left.

After the recipe, I will list other flavor ideas and combinations using this recipe.

Butterscotch Cookie Recipe
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed firm
  • 1 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line 2 cookie sheets with no-stick foil.
In an extra-large bowl, mix together cake mix, eggs, butter, sugar, and cocoa.
Fold in chips.
Drop by tablespoonfuls onto prepared sheets.
Bake for 14 to 15 minutes.
Cool on sheets and transfer to wire cooling rack.

Makes 3 to 4 dozen cookies.

If you like nuts, reduce chips to 1 cup and add 1/2 cup of chopped nuts to mix.
If you enjoy spicy cookies, use a spice cake mix instead of yellow.
Try using chocolate chips and/or white chips in place of butterscotch if you prefer.
Sometimes I add a half teaspoon of vanilla for a dab of extra flavor.
