The first time I made these cookies I wasn't sure about the ginger and butterscotch combination, but they really are tasty! I found this recipe in a mail-sent booklet from Nestle and Safeway around Christmastime. They're easy to make and add a little spice to your life!
Ingredients: 3 cups all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons baking soda, 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger, 3/4 teaspoon ground cloves, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar, 1 cup (2 sticks)butter, softened, 1/3 cup molasses, 1 large egg, 1 2/3 cups (11 oz. package)butterscotch chips.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt in small bowl; set aside. In large mixing bowl, combine sugar, butter, molasses and egg until creamy. Gradually beat in flour mixture until well blended. Stir in chips by hand. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 9-11 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes before transferring to cooling racks.
Makes 2-3 dozen cookies.
