Peanut Butter, Butterscotch Chip Cookies – Recipe

Hello My Imaginary Friends,

I’ve been challenged invited to take part in a Virtual Cookie Exchange, hosted by the wonderful Linda Poitevin.


I was invited by the great, and powerful, S.M. Carrière. Find her recipe here.

The idea is to give a cookie recipe and invite 4 other creative types to do the same.

Peanut Butter, Butterscotch Chip Cookies

Adapted from “Purity Cook Book: The Complete Guide to Canadian Cooking” 1970’s edition. This as the first recipe I ever made one my own.

Sift together:

  • 1 1/4 Cups Flour
  • 1/2 TSP of Baking Soda
  • 1/8 TSP Salt

Cream Together:
