Nutty butterscotch cookies

Nutty Butterscotch Cookies

1/4 c. shortening
2/3 c. packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 T. applesauce
1/2 t. vanilla
1/3 c. millet flour
1/3 c. brown rice flour
1/3 c. potato starch
2 T. sweet rice flour
1/4 t. xanthan gum
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1/4 c. chopped almonds
1/2 c. butterscotch chips

Cream the shortening and sugar until it's well-incorporated. It won't be as creamy as normal cookies. Beat in the egg, vanilla, and applesauce. Mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl, and stir the mixture into the wet mixture. Stir in the nuts and butterscotch, and bake on a greased cookie sheet at 375 until they're done.

This recipe makes soft, cakey cookies with a yummy butterscotch flavor. You can also get crispier cookies by baking them a little longer.

Yum! Applesauce and butterscotch cookies sound awesome. I bet if you used cinnammon applesauce it would be even better next time... and if you do that you should definetly invite me over! :)
