Wow, what decadent looking cookies! I've never thought to put butterscotch chips in pumpkin cookies. Thanks for the "secret" recipe.

I have SO much winter squash in my garden (which is what I use to make pumpkin bread and cookies) and so I will have to try some different recipes this winter to use them up and this is definitely getting added to the recipes to try out.

Hope you are having a great day! Got to run and cover the garden as there is supposed to be a bad freeze tonight.
