These Coconut Butterscotch Cookies
started out as being something totally different! I was attempting to make Butterscotch Blondie Bites, but when things didn't quite turn out as planned, some quick alterations to the baking method, quickly turned a baking fail into a success, and these Coconut Butterscotch Cookies were born!
If you like American style Coconut Macaroon cookies, but find them a bit too gummy, then these cookies might just be for you. You might think that with all that butterscotch and white chocolate in the recipe, these would be extremely sweet and chewy, but they really aren't. It's more like a shortbread cookie that ran into a trail-mix bar. The coconut, pecans and white chocolate chips balance out quite nicely to make these a new, toasty and nutty addition to the holiday cookie box!
