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.


  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. I'm beyond's all down to drooling now...

  5. I'm not crazy about butterscotch but these do sound yummy!

  6. I love Butterscotch =) Thanks for posting!! These look fantastic!
