pumpkin cookies with butterscotch chips {#theleftoversclub}

Pumpkin cookies is a misnomer for this recipe. What they should be called is BUTTERSCOTCH CHIPS (with pumpkin) COOKIES.

The first time I made these I used chocolate covered orange peel in place of the butterscotch. I was dubious of those chips. I mean butterscotch is a hard candy, not a soft chip. What could they actually be made of?

But WOW. Butterscotch chips are amazing. They filled my kitchen with that distinct butterscotch smell. So comforting. And they taste just as good.

I am still not sure what those chip are made of (I could read the bag, but then I may not like what I read) but I don't care so much now that I've tasted them.


I am sending these to my November Leftovers Club partner, Lisa Marie over at Let's Give Peace a Chance. Can't wait to see what she is sending me!!
