While out and about yesterday, Dave found a cookbook with some really good recipes in it, including this one for Butterscotch Cookies.

2 C. brown sugar

1 C. shortening or margarine

2 eggs

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. cream of tartar

1 tsp. vanilla

3 C. flour

Cream brown sugar and shortening together. Add eggs, then dry ingredients and vanilla. Mix well. Chill a short time and roll into balls. Flatten a little and bake at 375 F for 15 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet and cool on rack.

Yields 4 1/2 dozen.

These are REALLY good!

ETA: You might want to shorten the baking time a little bit for softer cookies.
