Notes: this is also a Meghan idea, and I added the pecans and coconut. She is a smart one, and a fun person to cook with! These were made for 2 reasons. One was it was her new roomies birthday, and also for wayne, a handball friend of my dad’s that asks me every time he sees me where his cookies are. He likes my cooking! He fled Portland before we could give them to him though, but we enjoyed them and so did birthday boy Melvin. I thought they might be too sweet with all the butterscotch chips, but it actually turned out quite well. Its hard to find time to cook when on vacation, let me tell you…but Meghan really helped me out.
