Review This Recipe
So very rich & addicting!
So very hard not to eat them all as they were on the cooling racks!! Def. need a tall glass of icy cold milk to counter the rich sweetness of these...yummo!
I used full flavored molasses - not the mild the recipe called for, but it wasn't overwhelming at all.
The butterscotch chips are just the perfect dash of rich & sweet to balance out the bit of spice in the cookies.
If you like gingerbread at all - you have to try this recipe!
