It's great having friends in high places, that is the northern hemisphere. My dear, dear friend Megan in the States answered my call when I said that we were so unfortunate here in Australia not to have butterscotch chips. She sent me a 'care package' for my birthday with not one but two packets! I couldn't wait to rip that packet open and try one (or 100 - I can't remember - I was delirious) and I wasn't disappointed. Oh my gosh. They are just delightful. I couldn't wait to try baking with them so made up a batch of my darling friend Claire's Melt'n'Mix Choc Chip Cookies.
Best part about this recipe is with the butter being warm, the chips melt and spread throughout the cookie. (The ones that made it into the bowl that is and not the ones I threw down my throat.) This is such a quick, easy recipe but produces a lovely crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside cookie.
