These peanut butter cookies with butterscotch chips will melt in your mouth. They never last long at my house! Children and adults will love these yummy snacks.

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup walnuts or nuts of your choice
In a large bowl, beat sugars, margarine and peanut butter until light and fluffy.  Add vanilla and egg; blend well.  Stir in flour, baking soda and salt;  mix well.  Fold in butterscotch chips and nuts.  Shape dough into 1 inch balls.  Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.  Flatten with fork dipped in sugar.  Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove from cookie sheets immediately and cool completely.  Makes 4 to 5 dozen depending on size.   Enjoy!

    These sound really good and I am anxious to try. Make your potato soup twice now and it is so delicious. Took a pot to a friend that lost her husband recently.
