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.
