These cookies will never win in a beauty contest.  They are monochromatic, many are misshapen and the chips have a sunken in appearance.  But as they say, it’s what’s on the inside that counts.  And that means that these cookies are a major winner.  You can see why just by the title – pumpkin and butterscotch, two ingredients that are already wonderful on their own, come together to make magic happen.  The resulting cookies are quite addictive.  Normally I have fantastic willpower when it comes to sweets, but I found these irresistible and ate way too many in one day (so did Ben).  I’ve made pumpkin chocolate chip cookies before and while those are good, it is no contest – these are the best.
