Bacon-Butterscotch Chip Cookies

“After reading about 'Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies', I thought that it sounded good and worth a try. Found a few recipes, but then I 'tweaked' a basic cookie dough recipe, as I was out of chocolate chips. I substituted butterscotch chips and they turned out to be very good. As for the bacon, I just used a low-sodium which I had on hand. If using regular bacon, you might want to omit the salt in the recipe.”
