I hope that y’all know what I mean by the -ola here. It is just a bit of an intensifier. So, Yumola=major yummy. What is yumola? These cookies. Of course, you have to like butterscotch. 5 out of 6 Barlows love them — all except for the youngest who ran through the kitchen to get away from “that HORRIBLE butterscotch smell.” What? This is the same boy who will sadly be without dessert tonight because the cookies are all that I have in the house.
I’d post my version of the recipe except that I don’t have one. I made the recipe exactly as it was written. Although, I do plan to add just a bit more cinnamon next time and use some dark brown sugar instead of light brown.
These cookies also caused a bit of a furor over at Parents.com. You have to appreciate a cookie that could do that.
