Butterscotch Pecan Cookies

A few years ago I was pretty certain I didn't like butterscotch.  Then I tried these Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies that my friend introduced me to and a whole new world opened up. 
Do you know that chocolate chips are not the only flavor in the baking aisle?  Seriously!  Well, I can tell you I am a fan now.  Chad goes crazy for butterscotch too and these cookies are no different.

They are soft, chewy and soooo delicious.   The toasted pecans add a new dimension of flavor and the crunch is fantastic! This into my new favorite butterscotch cookie and I am sure it will be yours too!
