    Big-Batch Butterscotch Cookies Recipe

    My mom and I perfected this recipe years ago. We get rave reviews on these crowd-pleasing cookies.

    1-1/2 cups butter or margarine, softened
    3 cups packed brown sugar
    3 eggs
    1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    5-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

    In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Transfer to a larger bowl if necessary. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and cream of tartar; gradually add to the creamed mixture.

    Drop by level tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.

    Yield: about 20 dozen.
