Pumpkin Cookies with Butterscotch Morsels

Pumpkin Butterscotch Chip CookiesI made these cookies this week in order to use up a half opened bag of butterscotch chips. I decided after looking at how few chips I actually had, however, to add cinnamon chips as well. It turned out well and they didn’t last 24 hours.  Notice these cookies have no eggs!
