  • 1 12 oz bag of butterscotch chips


  1. Preheat oven at 275°

  3. Once mixed well, add butterscotch chips.

I like them best warm, right out of the oven and so will anyone in the house when you make them ;) as they smell great too! These cookies are very moist due to the pumpkin, so you must eat them within a few days or refrigerate them to keep them from spoiling. If you stack them, expect them to stick together by day two. Separate layers by wax paper. We’ve experimented by adding mini-chocolate chips once and adding chopped nuts another time. My family has told me to leave this recipe alone! And while I do not care for pumpkin pie or much else with pumpkin, I really do like these cookies.
