I tried a NEW cookie recipe….right off the back of the bag of butterscotch chips! I figured it was most likely a tried and true recipe and wouldn’t let me down! Right-O! They were YUMMY! So…..what do you think? Should they be called Oatmeal Scotties….OR Oatmeal Scotchies?
Of course, I wanted to learn something NEW today, so I researched BUTTERSCOTCH! It’s funny…it seems the historians can’t really agree on where the term came from. Usually when I research something, there’s TONS of information. Not so with Butterscotch! Hmmmm…is it named butterscotch because the confectionaries had to scorch the butter and sugar? I looked up toffee too, since butterscotch is similar to toffee but is only boiled to the soft-stage and not the hard crack stage that toffee is. Well…the origin of the word toffee is UNKNOWN also! I’m striking out today! I think I’ll go have some milk and cookies!
