Butterscotch Chip Cookies

You don’t need a special occasion to make these incredible butterscotch chip cookies. Bake them any time you want! They are chewy on the inside and a little crispy on the outside- the PERFECT cookie texture! The butterscotch chips are a fun alternative to chocolate chips. If you’ve never tried making cookies with butterscotch chips, I HIGHLY recommend it. My entire family loves making and eating these- they are pretty addicting!


These cookies are seriously so chewy and delicious. Make sure you have a big glass of milk to go with it. It takes less than 20 minutes to make a whole batch of these yummy treats. How simple is that??

How to Make Butterscotch Cookies

This is a pretty standard cookie recipe. These cookies are no-fuss and no-fail! You can mix up your ingredients by hand or using your stand mixer. I like using my stand mixer because it gets cookies into my tummy faster ????.

  1. Take a small bowl and mix together the flour, salt, and baking soda. Set that aside while you cream together your butter and sugars in your stand mixer.
  2. Add the two eggs one at a time until its all mixed together nicely. Don’t forget to add the vanilla!
  3. Grab your flour mixture and slowly add that to your wet ingredients.
  4. Pour in two cups of butterscotch chips (and try a few just to make sure they aren’t poisonous ????) and mix them together with a spoon/spatula.
  5. Bake and ENJOY!

Do you use a cookie scoop when making cookies? Sometimes I do and sometimes I just use two spoons. Or my hands. Whatever you use, scoop your cookie dough into balls onto an un-greased cookie sheet. Bake them in the oven at 350 degrees for 8-10 min. I like my cookies soft in the middle so they stay chewy and not too crunchy. How do you like yours – chewy or crunchy?
