Nutella Butterscotch Cookies

It seems I'm finding recipes all over the net using Nutella...

Cocoa, brownies, cookies, breads, etc etc.

I LOVE Nutella! 

It's a smooth chocolate hazelnut spread, and if you haven't tried it, you must add it to your grocery list and give it a try....and a lick, or three.

The label reads..."Made with over 50 hazelnuts per 13 oz. jar...contains no artificial colors or preservatives...Try Nutella Hazelnut Spread on whole wheat or multigrain toast as part of your balanced breakfast".

I find it near the peanut butter and honey aisle at the grocery store...

You won't be SOOO-RRRRYYY!

I enjoy it on toast, bananas, or even in a sandwich.  Whatever suits your fancy!

And in recipes like this one....

I'm here to share a delicious cookie recipe I found somewhere in blogland.  Sorry I can't recall if I found it at a blog, or whose??

Do hope you'll enjoy these tasty treats also!
