Gingerbread Butterscotch Cookies

Be sure and go to Gina's blog The Shabby Chic Cottage and sign up for her Christmas Carnival Giveaways! I'm giving away a Frog Prince or Princess in the Carnival.

I found this recipe over at Modern Country and had to try it! I just bought some butterscotch chips the other day so I didn't need to run to the store. I thought this sounded like an odd combination, but Jaime said that everyone asks for them at Christmas. My family loves gingerbread and they love butterscotch. I didn't even tell the family what was in them and they gobbled them down.

Be sure and check out Jaime's blog, she has some great decorating ideas, and recipes! You know me with recipes! I can't wait to try some of her others!

Gingerbread Butterscotch Cookies

1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 cup butter, room temperature
1 egg
1/3 cup molasses
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons soda
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons ginger
3/4 teaspoon cloves
1 (11 Oz) bag butterscotch chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl whisk all the dry ingredients.

In a mixer beat the brown sugar and butter for 2-3 minutes. Beat in the egg and molasses. Mix in the dry ingredients then add the butterscotch chips.

Drop onto cookie sheets with a cookie scoop. Bake 9-11 minutes. Remove to cookie racks to cool.
