BLOGGING EVENT: Midweek Morsels

hosted by Kristina at Kristina's Favorites
I made these for my kids a few weeks ago, and, even though they weren't chocolate chip cookies, they thought that they tasted good. Very high praise, because when I said I was making cookies, they only wanted Chocolate Chip Cookies. We make very good chocolate chip cookies here, and maybe someday I'll share that recipe with you all. For now, these are pretty good substitutes.

Butterscotch Almond Cookies

1 C butterscotch chips
1/2 C butter (margarine) softened
2/3 C brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 C crushed corn flakes cereal, slightly crushed
1/4 C almonds, slivered

Melt about 1/2 the butterscotch chips in a small saucepan on low heat, stirring constantly until smooth. Combine butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl and beat until well blended. (I never use a mixer for cookies, but you could) Stir in melted chips until thoroughly combined.

Add flour, baking soda, and salt to creamed mixture. Mix well. Stir in remaining butterscotch chips, corn flakes, and almonds. Shape into balls (or be lazy and drop by rounded spoonfuls) Place on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten slightly with fork dipped in sugar. Bake at 375 F for 8 - 10 minutes or until golden. Remove from sheets while warm and cool on wire racks.

Cornflakes! I never would have though to put that into cookie dough!

Those sound really really tasty. Maybe I'll try making them over the weekend. :) About how many cookies do they make?

they make about 4 dozen, by the recipe. I get about that many, if I make them small.
We don't always have corn flakes, so I pick a small bag up at the Bulk Barn. I love the Bulk Barn.

I wish I liked to bake cookies, but it's like pulling teeth for me. My mother with whip up a batch at the drop of a hat. She makes so many different varieties and freezes them for when the family gathers.

Anyway, if I could stand to make cookies, I think these sound delicious.

I'm so sorry I haven't been around your blog for a long time. I haven't been blogging much myself, but I just wanted to drop by and say hi, wish you a good weekend and a nice Easter (if you celebrate that) and apologize for being scarce.

I am finishing my Master thesis and this takes up most of my time. Hopefully, by the end of May, I will be able to blog more and participate more around the blogosphere.

I am still reviewing books from time to time on my blog, but I am not really active.

I don't expect you to come running visiting and commenting, I just wanted to let you know that I am very much alive and I miss reading and commenting on your blog very much.

This is a personal message written to all the blogowner, whose delightful blogs I visit on a regular basis, but it has been copy/pasted. So if you find it on other blogger's blogs, that is why.

I look very much forward to be active again - and apologize once again for not being active the past month and not being able to be active for another month or two.

Louise,
