Great recipe! Very delicious, but I would definitely say only add 1/2 to 2/3 of the bag of butterscotch. That is what I did and it was plenty sweet. I also added a little nutmeg, and if you prefer a spicier more "gingerbready" taste I would recommend adding more of each spice and perhaps some more molasses. I baked them for about ten minutes at 330 so they are nice and chewy. Also, someone said that their cookies didn't look like the ones in the picture. I lightly rolled them into balls and they turned out BEAUTIFULLY!!! :) Enjoy!

These were amazing, chewy, soft and excellent flavor. I followed others ideas and baked them at 330 for 10 minutes, I also used white chocolate chips, only half the bag, added a tsp of nutmeg and 1/2 a tsp extra of the other spices. This cookie received rave reviews from some of my toughest critics.

These are very good gingerbread cookies! The things I changed were the amount of brown sugar I used, I only used 2 cups and they were still sweet enough. I also used less butterscotch than called for, and regular molasses instead of light. They taste amazing! The butterscotch goes together well. I think, though, that if you use the exact amount of sugar and chips called for, they will be too sweet. I also used fresh chopped ginger instead of the dried stuff. My boyfriend loves these as well even though he turned up his nose at the ingredients! Haha...
