Pamela’s Peanut Butter, Pecan and Butterscotch Cookies

Created by Ivy Lodge Cook, Pamela Earl

Yields about two dozen cookies

1/2 cup no salt butter 
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon good vanilla
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 ¼ cups butterscotch chips                                                                                                                                
1 ¼ cups chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla, and peanut butter. Beat until smooth. Mix in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the butterscotch chips and pecans.

Drop small spoonfuls of dough onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly browned. Store in an airtight container at room temperature. So scrumptious!
