Butterscotch Chip Cookies

Okay, I know everyone has their own "favorite" butterscotch ccokie recipe. Maybe one that belonged to great grandma or Aunt Jane, but this one is hard to resist. As a child I was allergic to chocolate, I know horrible, so most of my treats included butterscotch. Here is one that I really enjoy.

1 cup butter
1 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 Tbsp baking powder
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp butterscotch flavoring or you can use good vanilla
2 cups mini butterscotch chips or regular, I like the minis the best

In the bowl of your best mixer (Mine is Big Red) cream the butter and the sugar until nice and light and fluffy. Then, add the eggs and flavoring of your choice and on low speed add your baking powder and flour. Mix until nicely incorporated. Then add your chips and mix in well.

Oven temp is 380 degrees. I use a large cookie scoop, almost a 1/4 of a cup and roll into a ball and then roll into sugar. Place on a cookie sheet that has been covered with parchment paper. Press down with a flat object to flatten out the cookies till they are about 2 1/2 inches in diameter. These will be baked for 11 minutes. They will look light when they come out, but let them rest on the sheet for about 5 minutes to cool and then remove. You can use any chips, I have also used this recipe and done butterscotch and chocolate mini chips. Use your imagination. You can also make them a little smaller and adjust your baking time.

About Me

Brazil, Indiana, United States
I have a restaurant in Brazil, Indiana named Simply Decadent Cafe & Catering. I also do full event catering along with wedding/party planning. I must admit I am horribly addicted to coffee and wild cherry diet pepsi along with chocolate. I love listening to my MP3 player while I cook and have been known to dance around the kitchen a little. Have to make the kitchen fun don't we? I don't have any formal kitchen training, but have learned a lot over the years from a few fantastic cooks, my grandma being one of them. I love trying new recipes and my customers are always willing to be my taste testers.
