[…] Butterscotch Roll Cookies […]
Are there butterscotch chips in these cookies? The picture looks like there are, but I don’t see them listed in the ingredients.
I have had these at Lehman’s. They are delicious. Love them.
I think that there are butterscotch chips in the recipe. Why else would it be called Butterscotch cookies. Someone just forgot to list them
The true Butterscotch flavor comes from brown sugar and butter not chips or morsels.
No butter in the recipe either!! So where does the butterscotch flavor come from? Beats me, but the picture sure shows what appears to be Butterscotch chips in them!
