double chocolate & butterscotch chip cookies

double chocolate & butterscotch chip cookies

Sometimes I crave a chocolate chip cookie. Melted chips within a soft cookie with crispy edges. That seems like heaven. I feel like I'm salivating just typing that.

I came upon this recipe for triple chocolate chip cookies but unfortunately lacked that third chocolate (ie: white chocolate) but I had some butterscotch chips in the pantry. They worked out well.

Satisfying recipe for the little cookie monster in you. Don't forget the milk!

...

double chocolate & butterscotch chip cookies
makes 30 cookies

1.25 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
6 tbsp granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
3/4 cup butterscotch chips

Mix together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat butter, brown and granulated sugars until smooth. Add egg and vanilla and beat until well blended. Slowly add dry ingredients and beat until just incorporated. Mix in all the chocolate and butterscotch chips.

Drop by heaping spoonful onto prepared baking sheet, ensuring enough space between each cookie, as they spread.

Bake cookies at 350F for 10-13 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes and then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

Yum! I totally understand your craving since I had the same one last night and baked some cookies! After promptly devouring half a dozen, I brought them to work today so I wouldn't eat the rest of them.

These look really good - I'm a huge butterscotch fan and I'm sure that would go wonderful with chocolate and a glass of milk. :-)

I like butterscotch more now that I did when I was a child.

I too find it hard to limit eating fresh baked cookies. I swear I gain a couple of pounds when I make a batch :)
