Butterscotch Spice Cookies

Another great batch of cookies from Cookie Baking Day 2012 are these Butterscotch Spice Cookies. I found them on the Duncan Hines web site a year ago, but decided not to make them. Then a few months ago, while I was baking Apple Cider Cupcakes, I looked on the back of the cake mix box and there was the recipe for Butterscotch Spice Cookies. They sounded so good and I knew they had to make the list this year.

So, how’s it taste?

If you’re a fan of butterscotch, you’ll love these. I’m a fan, but I always forget about butterscotch chips and head for the semisweet. Their flavor is nicely complimented by the spices in the cake mix. Since these cookies start out from a cake mix, they are incredibly easy to make. Be warned the dough is really greasy. Almost to the point you think they won’t turn out well. But press on because they are awesome! Once they bake, they lose that greasy sheen and turn into super tasty cookies.

    I recently made cookies using a cake mix and was amazed at how much they tasted like a “from scratch” recipe. I have all the ingredients for these and will make some after I finish off all my holiday goodies!
