Easy, inexpensive butterscotch cookies


In the kitchen with Sharon this week is my good friend Patricia Nichols with her butterscotch cookies. It’s December, my friends, and time to get baking.

Thank you so much Patricia for sharing all of your wonderful recipes. I love butterscotch, I am making these cookies, it doesn’t take a lot of ingredients and looks pretty easy to make. In our world we don’t have the time and plus all the expense to make these complicated recipes.

If you have any of these easy and not lots of ingredients recipes, please send them to me and I will put you in the kitchen with Sharon. Please send them, along with a story about the recipe if you have one, to [email protected] or call me at 937-393-3456.

Enjoy this recipe. Thank you so much and have a great week!
