Butterscotch Cookies

1 c. butter
1 ½ c. packed brown sugar
1 large egg
3 T. heavy whipping cream
1 t. vanilla
3 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
½ t. salt

Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Cream butter and sugar until smooth. Add the egg, cream and vanilla and blend. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture.

Spoon onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake until cookies are golden and firm to the touch, about 12-14 minutes. (If you want to make them really big use a 1/4 cup measuring cup and then bake them a few minutes longer.)

From whence it came: Sue Burns, the friend who gave me the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie recipe, also gave me this one, and it's another winner! Thanks for giving me so many great recipes, Sue! You're a cooking and baking hero!

Why it's blogable: These cookies have a great flavor. If you feed one of these to The Spy Who Loves Me he will take one bite and his eyes will roll back into his balding head. Do you think it's mean that I said he's balding? Well, if it is then too bad! When I married the man twenty-eight years ago he had a full head of the thickest red curly hair you ever did see. Now don't get me wrong, I knew there was a chance that someday those red locks would turn white...and they have...but never in a million years did I dream that he would shave each and every one of them down to a fraction of an inch. I know this is a cooking blog, and not a tell the world what you just don't get about your husband blog, but I just don't get why he wants to look balder than he really is. It's not natural. Most men are clambering for more hair. They make infomercials about it. Heck, they even have a hair club for men. I know it's true, I've seen it on TV. Well, I've just gone way off topic, but I feel better now that I've vented a bit. It won't make a lick of difference, he's determined to go out of this world balder than when came into it. Anywho, these cookies are good! You should make them. I'm making a batch right this very minute for my sonny-in-law who I'm planning to visit this weekend. I love to cook for that boy. He's very appreciative and a whole lot of fun! You should make them for someone you love. Maybe even someone who's balding!

Hope you enjoy stirring it up!
