Yummy Butterscotch Chip Cookies

My husband baked us some cookies last night. The fact that he wanted to make home-made cookies was a shock to me, but he wanted those cookies so badly that we made an impromptu shop at the grocery store just to get butterscotch chips. He used a good Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, but instead of using the chocolate chips, he used butterscotch chips. And boy are those cookies good!

The Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe in itself is a winner. Now with the butterscotch chips it’s a whole other cookie recipe that’s equally as good. I know you will love it if you (or your husband) decide to bake up these treats. Here’s how to make ’em:


  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup stick butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (12 ounces) butterscotch chips (2 cups)


  • Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Mix sugars, butter and egg in large bowl. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt (dough will be stiff). Stir in butterscotch chips.
  • Drop dough by rounded tablespoons about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake 8 – 10 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft). Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.

This recipe makes roughly 4 dozen cookies, of course depending upon how big or how small you make them. My husband made 38 cookies, if that helps you at all.

I gave some of them to my hair stylist this afternoon, who raved about them. And I will be giving some to one of my neighbors, who let us borrow some flour last night around 8 (yes although we made a trip to the grocery store prior to baking, we failed to realize we were nearly out of flour). Hey, what are neighbors for?

So try these Butterscotch Chip Cookies out and let me know how you and yours like them. I think the butterscotch chips make a nice change.
