Okay, so this is totally not my recipe, but hell.. I did do some adapting. I cut some of the white sugar and replaced it with brown; used 1 scant stick of butter, 100% stone ground wheat pastry flour instead of white and added some ground flax & wheat germ to give it just a little more nutrient. Not much, but a little.
The only kind of bad thing in the cookies is the butterscotch bits, so I’m looking for a natural replacement. If anyone has had any luck with a tasty version, please let me know.
This is a half recipe made from the back of the butterscotch bits package. Pretty tasty, yes. Yes. Tasty. Yes.
[early update: turns out that from what I’ve been reading, Butterscotch is simply butter & brown sugar – now how to make them into chips!?]
