Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake until set and lightly browned, about 10 to 12 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer cookies wire racks to cool completely.

Delish~Very nice original taste. I used butter in place of shortening and watch these guys cause they burn easy. I recommend 8 min max.

Excellent! Did 1/2 cup of margarine instead of adding the shorting. I decreased the white sugar to 1/4 cup. It think it is still too sweet. Next time I will decrease on the sugar again.

Nice, sweet cookies...I ended up lightly greasing the cookie sheet since my first batch stuck a little. They were also somewhat thin so I might consider increasing the flour a bit. Still good ...

I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out great. I am taking them to a cookie exchange tomorrow and I know they will be a big hit.

These cookies were great. Even my husband who is not a huge butterscotch fun loved them. Will make again. Followed recipe. Thanks for the recipe.
