Butterscotch Cookies are a family favorite around here. I made these to sell at the farmers’ market in 2010 and they are also a big hit. People would come just to buy the famous butterscotch cookies.

These cookies couldn’t be any simpler. I mean, it is basically a chocolate chip cookie with butterscotch chips substituted for chocolate.

I made these cookies for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a non-profit committed to raising funds for research to develop new, improved treatments for pediatric cancer. This organization was started by two OXO employees and you can read more about their story and this inspiring organization.
