    Made these cookies for a holiday party --- holy crap, they were well recieved. So delicious. I was able to make 36 of these cookies instead of the 24 indicated in serving. I also used half the package of butterscotch chips instead of the whole bag, I found it sufficient. Very delicious, very good!! - 12/12/10
