Butterscotch Toffee Cookies

With its big butterscotch and chocolate flavor, my cookie stands out. I like to enjoy it with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee. It’s my fallback recipe when I’m short on time and need something delicious fast. —Allie Blinder, Norcross, Georgia

    So good and so easy--I didn't find the dough to be too stiff at all and I love recipes like this that don't require that I get my mixer out. My husband is not a fan of butterscotch or toffee, but really likes these cookies.

    I made no changes. It's a bit sweet, but goes great with a cup of coffee - make these all the time!

    I added a tablespoon of milk, cup of finely chopped pecans and cut butterscotch chips in half. Loved these cookies! So easy and so good!

    Really easy and delicious! Yes, the batter DOES get stiff, but I have a Kitchen Aid stand mixer and it’s fine ??

    This cookie was too sweet if I make it again I will only use half of the chips it was hard to scoop and hard to eat .

    Cookies made with cake mix are the best. They're easy and fast to make, and they always taste delicious. These butterscotch toffee cookies are no exception. I couldn't find the butter pecan cake mix at my local market, or at the Wal-Mart in the town 30 miles away (welcome to Wyoming), so I used spice cake mix instead. The cookies turned out to be amazing anyway.

    I had such high hopes for this recipe, but was so disappointed. I prepared as per the recipe come home and after baking the full time indicated, the cookies still looked like roar blobs. They were crunchy combo but never spread or flattened at all. The taste was reasonably decent, but how could it not be with toffee bits and butterscotch chips? Texture was not good at all

    Has anyone ever tried making the cake and adding the butterscotch and toffee morsels?? Do you think it would come out okay?
