This past week was absolutely “nuts” for me. Two failed recipes, a LIVE cooking show, a showing on our house and it’s not even listed on the market. After the two recipes failed I decided to take the week off and just concentrate on personal matters.
That means I’m back and ready to go this week and I’m starting off with these Nestle Crunch Butterscotch Cookies. They were the only things that worked out this past week and a good ole’ cookie recipe just makes me happy.
It doesn’t hurt when it’s loaded with cookie bar pieces, butterscotch chips and chocolate chips. I was also able to make a large batch and freeze 2/3 of the dough so whenever I want a cookie I can pop one into the oven.
Tip: Place the cookie dough using a scooper or spoon onto a baking sheet. Flash freeze for 10 minutes and then remove dough and place in freezer Ziploc bags. Place back in freezer until ready to use. Dough will stay good in the freezer up to 6 months.
Now I’m off to go play catch up from this past week. I’ll be back with more recipes this week.
