I made Soft Butterscotch Pumpkin Spice cookies. I saw the recipe over at Design Eat Repeat when she was posting her 30 days of cookies series. I printed out a handful of the recipes and asked Chris to pick the one that sounded the best to him.
The cookies turned out great, but they were a little more difficult to make that I anticipated based on the recipe. First, the dough was a bit more sticky than I anticipated it would be so I had to add some additional flour in order to even get them on the cookie tray. Fortunately, it didn't seem to change the taste too much so I still considered the cookies a win.
The icing, however, was a HUGE issue. Initially, I began heating up a small batch of butterscotch chips to practice the drizzle that was supposed to top the cookies. That nearly ended in me burning down my apartment building. Apparently, I was not using a microwave safe bowl. Oops! After starting the melting process (which is NOT as easy as it sounds) again, I gave the drizzle a shot and when I didn't have any success, I just decided to fully ice them. Chris said they tasted great to him...and that is really all that mattered!
What is your favorite cookie to make this time of year?
