    Also based on other reviews, reduced butter to 2 1/2 sticks, left all other ingredients same; came out perfect. (ooh. I didn't toast my pecans. just in a rush so skipped it.) Made for a bridal shower and they got rave reviews, multiple requests for recipe. Wanna try it with milk choc chips instead of butterscotch. Think semi-sweet you'd loose the 'sweet and salty', but milk choc might be great.

    After reading reviews, I reduced the butter in this recipe to 1 cup/2 sticks. I used the entire bag of butterscotch chips and toffee chips instead of the recommended amounts, and topped the cookies with flake salt *AND* crystal sugar. (Tasted better than flake salt alone.) These are the best cookies I have ever tasted. Amazing, addictive, unique. Can't wait to give them away! =)

    After reading the other comments: when I made these I used 3 sticks of butter and about 2 packed cups of brown sugar. They came out great! They weren't greasy or flat and spread out. Definitely try this switch - it was worth it!

    I agree with other reviewers -- these were ridiculously greasy. They were very flat and spread out a LOT. They had a very nice taste, but I was disappointed that they were so greasy and not very attractive. This was an expensive recipe to make, and I will not make it again.
