Had to chill mine to get them to totally harden but I doubled the recipe and may have gone heavy on the peanut butter. Will - Read more ...
  9. The best haystacks recipe! Be careful about the amount of peanut butter--it will still taste great but may get sticky.
  10. this is a great cookie....another variation is to use a few milk choc. chips along with the butterscotch and leave out the p.b.....yum!
