Give me butterscotch over chocolate any day!

That may not be a popular opinion, but it’s the truth. I’m a sucker for anything butterscotch and these Coconut Butterscotch Cookies are a dream. You can whip up a batch of 48 scrumptious cookies in a matter of 20 minutes. 

You don’t need a reason to make these cookies! Although, they would be good for a bake sale or cookie exchange. I like to make them just because.

I love to eat them when they are still warm from the oven. The butterscotch is melty and sweet. I savor every last morsel.

My fiance likes to eat his cookies dipped in a glass of milk. I guess it brings back fond childhood memories for him. Did anyone else used to do this too?
