Outstanding! We love these. The only change I make is light brown sugar instead of dark, and bake at 375 degrees.

Outstanding! We love these. The only change I make is light brown sugar instead of dark, and bake at 375 degrees.

Really nice flavor. I baked them and then froze them and the flavor seemed to get stronger after they were thawed. Made these for our local Fair and I won first prize! Great recipe.

Very good Butterscotch cookies! Just what I was looking for. I did follow others advice and turn the temp down to 375 and the cooking time down to 10 mins and they turned out perfect!

Excellent well keeping icebox cookie,family loved it

Very good.I thought 12 min was a bit to long though. will cut it back to 10 next time.

Excellent. Doubled the recipe and froze the rolls overnight. We had a cookie baking party and these sliced great. Cook until only light brown and they keep better without getting quite so crunch...
