Recently we had a covered dish supper with some families from our church. It was a small group and we wanted to make sure everything got covered: desserts, sides dishes, casseroles, etc. So my mom, older sister and I got in the kitchen and got busy. I volunteered to make dessert (the cook gets to taste test right?).
Being that I am not always in the mood for cookies and that we wanted something that would make a lot, I chose to make one of our favorite recipes: Butterscotch Chewies. I made two pans and since we served them on a plate, I got to taste test before hand.
The dessert was a hit, I think we only brought home 4 or 5 and with two pans we took almost 48. Sounds like it was a success.
