I wanted to make some cookies for our road trip to Texas. Homemade always taste better than the packaged kind. I also wanted to use up the last of some of my baking supplies. One of my favorite blogs, The Picky Palate, had an interesting one that I have not tried before. I had such success with Jenny's Blackberry Cream Cheese Muffins, that I had to give this cookie recipe a try.
I had the white chocolate chips and I had butterscotch chips, but no chocolate chips. So, I went ahead and made them without the chocolate. The dough is fantastic! It probably has nothing to do with the two sticks of butter. It is a soft dough that bakes up nicely. Do you taste the dough before you bake? I do and you just know when a cookie is gonna be good based on it's raw form. This is a winner!
White Chocolate Butterscotch Cookies
(adapted from Jenny's original recipe at the Picky Palate)
2 sticks softened butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 tbsp pure vanilla
2 1/ cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixer, beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla until well combined. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl; sift of stir to combine. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Mix until just combined. Stir in chips. Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet placing about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake for 9-12 minutes or until edges just barely start to turn golden. Remove and let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to cooling racks to cool completely. Enjoy!!
