Butterscotch Gingerbread Cookies

I wanted to bake some cookies for a party tomorrow, and thought it would be fun to make some cookies suitable to the season.  Typing in 'fall cookies' into allrecipes.com's seach field brought up over 200 cookies.  After weeding through all the different biscotti, squares, and cookies, I came up with a short list of 13, and from there picked the winner - Butterscotch Gingerbread Cookies!  I love butterscotch, and I love gingerbread, so I thought they would be the perfect mix.

The recipe was easy to follow, and I had all the ingredients in my cupboards.  The only disappointing thing was that the dough was a little crumbly.  Instead of dropping the dough by spoonful onto the cookie sheet, I balled up handfuls of the dough to make it stick together and just set the balls on the cookie sheet.

Here's how they turned out:

I will admit they are very tasty!  They're quite sweet and butterscotch-y with subtle hints of the gingerbread.  I will definitely save this recipe to my recipe box and make them again!
