“My husband really likes flax seed, and this recipe is something I came up with just for him. It is actually an adaptation of a chocolate chip cookie recipe. However we've found that with this version, chocolate (much as I love it) just doesn't taste right. Butterscotch and flax together make a wonderful flavor! Note: The dough is very sticky. I use a 1 1/2 inch cookie scoop that pops the dough out. Also, don't leave them in the oven too long!”
