Last night while I was working on the blog, I was also on Facebook.
I love to multitask.
It’s so much more productive.
Especially when you’re also on social media!
One of my young friends on FB (and I say young because I am truly old enough to be her mother), Ashley, posted that she was baking. Of course, I was curious as to what she might be baking and am now always on the lookout for new recipes, so I just had to ask. I also told her that if they were yummy I wanted her to share and I would think about putting it on the blog.
I really didn’t think about it for very long because all day all I could think about was butterscotch cookies and how yummy she said they were. Ashley even said that her brother, Jared, liked LOVED them and he doesn’t like cookies with nuts.
So, it really was a no-brainer.
Ashley is a sweetheart and I miss her. We used to work in retail together, and she is an extremely intelligent and beautiful woman. She also has the most beautiful brown eyes.
I love that she loves to bake – something I didn’t know about her until recently.
Thanks for sharing these with us, Ashley! I look forward to making these again in the future.

|At this point, I just wanted to jump into this batter, it was so smooth, and delicious!|
Add the flour, one cup at a time, beating thoroughly after each.
