Butterscotch Cookies

Thanks everyone who wished me well yesterday. I do feel much better now, thanks!

With one stray stick of butter in my freezer from holiday cookie baking, I felt it time to bake even MORE cookies. I found this recipe on the recipe message board over at WAHM.com and I knew I had to try it! Anything caramel or butterscotch is always a hit in our house. These are not much to look at but they taste great! I pressed down the second sheet full with a fork to flatten them a bit because they don't seem to flatten out on their own.

Butterscotch Cookies
(from MMM-Cookies)

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1-3/4 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Lightly grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper. Cut the butter into small pieces.
Put in a large microwave safe bowl and melt for 30 seconds then at 10 second intervals.
Add brown sugar; stir until sugar is dissolved. Let cool for just a few minutes.Beat in egg, milk, and vanilla.Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt. Drop by the spoonful on to cookie sheets about 2" apart. Bake 12-14 minutes or until edges are browned. Let cool on cookie sheet 1 minute then transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely. Makes 2 dozen cookies.
