Cinnamon bourbon butterscotch cookies

I was playing pantry expiration safari and found a bunch of butterscotch morsels whose useful life was coming to the end.  I’m thinking cookies since I had already done bloodies.  So I asked what works well with butterscotch?  I said some bourbon and some cinnamon would work well.  I also thought that I wanted a lighter cookie, so I switched up the leavening agent, and a 1 hour later, cookies! Tasty cookies!  I hope you like them.
