the most wonderful blend of butterscotchy chocolately crunchy goodness

my mom and all the sisters are getting together Saturday to bake cookies and just hang out.
this is one of the recipe’s I am taking and it was a total accident but it ended up being my son in law’s favorite cookie hence its name. 

Quite an unexpected surprise was this recipe.  

Here is how it went down… – I have had our families Butterscotch Cookie Recipe that is one of our go to favorites along with our Pumpkin Brownie’s   SO…instead of making 3 different recipe’s I made one and dumped all the other ingredients ( butterscotch morselsGhirardelli white chocolate morsels and Trader Joe’s Honey Wheat Pretzel Sticks  in for good measure and out came


the most wonderful blend of butterscotchy chocolately crunchy goodness.

WARNING - these cookies will seriously bribe any man to work. SO - if you have some honey do’s  I would suggest you bake a batch..NOW:)
if you have a favorite cookie swap recipe I would LOVE to have it

I flattened the dough balls out a tad
bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden..i cook less for a more soft cookie
The recipe makes 4 dozen but I got 2 1/2 because I make mine bigger.

Catt - Looks wonderful….however, the font you used for the recipe is just about unreadable and I cannot highlight and cut and paste so I would have to hand write the recipe (which is almost unreadable)….would love it if you could redo the recipe in a different font and put a link to the recipe that could be copied. They look fantastic…thanks.
