Looking for a certain cookie recipe>

When I was young, I'd make these cookies. I think they were called Butterscotch cookies. And I think they were from a really old Betty Crocker cookbook. They started out with melting margarine, and melting sugar in it. Then adding the other ingredients. I would make them in just a pot. And they were so damn yummy, but I cannot find the recipe anymore. Does anyone know what cookies I'm talking about? Do you have the recipe?

  • You can try here http://www.bettycrocker.com/search/searchresults.aspx?terms=butterscotch+cookie
    But almost sounds like a spritz recipe.. http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes.aspx/the-ultimate-spritz/aa68df04-bd64-4f1b-8421-0df82064bca4

  • No, those aren't it. This one wasn't a shortbread, it had and egg. And it was a soft cookie, but it was spooned onto the cookie sheet. But thank you so much for trying to find it!

  • My childhood favorite was Peanut Butter Sugar Cookies, very delicious - but common I guess.

  • I have an original Betty Crocker cookbook that my 94 yr old grandma got as a wedding gift. Let me look through it and see if it is in there. I will get back to you.

  • I found a Butterscotch Cookie recipe in the 1950 Betty Crockers cookbook, I sent it to you in a private message. I hope it was what you were looking for.
