Butterscotch Chip Cookies

December 22 , 2014 by: Marga Munson Dessert, Holidays

In truth… When I went to make these cookies I intended to make toffee cookies. I thought I had a bag of toffee chips in the pantry. And then I went to make these, and there was no toffee to be found anywhere. So instead of taking a trip to the store just for toffee chips, I used what I had on hand, which were butterscotch chips. They turned out great!!!! Sometimes you just have to go with what you have!


Butterscotch Chip Cookies

Makes 3 dozen

1 stick of butter, at room temp
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg, at room temp
2 tspn vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tspn baking powder
a pinch of salt
2 cups butterscotch chips

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Cream the butter and sugar together in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the egg and vanilla and mix well. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt and then gradually add it to the wet ingredients. Stir in the chips.

Drop onto a prepared baking sheet using a small ice cream scooper (seriously the best cookie making tool EVER) and leave about 2 inches between cookies. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. Let them sit on the baking sheet for several minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

Happy Holidays!
