Pumpkin Butterscotch Chip Cookies
Do I really need to say much here? Pumpkin cookies, with butterscotch chips. Yum. The End.
Start by creaming together the shortening and sugar.
Measure out 1 cup of pumpkin.
Plop the pumpkin in with the shortening/sugar mixture. Add vanilla. Mix together.
Plop is a technical term.
Sift the flour into a separate bowl and add the salt...
Baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon.
Slowly add the flour mixture into the pumpkin mixture until its all incorporated.
Turn off your mixer and add the butterscotch chips. You'll probably want to stir these in by hand.
Doesn't look like much dough but it makes a lot of cookies. These cookies are very sweet so you'll want to keep them relatively small.
Use a teaspoon to dollop them onto a baking sheet. I lined mine with parchment paper but you could also spray your cookie sheet.
These cookies don't spread out in the oven like some cookies do so keep that in mind as you're putting them on the cookie sheet. They will pretty much look the same before and after they are cooked. The Butterscotch adds the perfect flavoring to these. Even though they are sweet, they are also addictive! Great fall cookie!
