Butterscotch Drops

These creamy, buttery and delicious no bake butterscotch drop cookies will disappear in the blink of an eye.  You won’t believe how quick and easy these are to make. Three ingredients is all you need-that’s right-THREE! These were one of the first cookies that my friend Beth and I made when we started our annual baking day. We thought they were so amazing! I remember eating these until we were almost sick, but we just couldn’t stop-they were so delicious.
