A Secret Ingredient

We’ve always loved making cookies, and over the years we’ve made so many varieties. Today’s recipe happens to be a twist of our classic chocolate chip cookies!

Everything is made the same way, but instead of adding vanilla, you add our secret ingredient – almond extract! Believe it or not, but it makes these cookies irresistible. We also add white and butterscotch chips, and any time we make them, people ask for the recipe. They’re just that good. 😉

Of course you can adjust them to your liking, but we are promising the chips and almond are the perfect combo.

Easy Peasy Cookies

These white chocolate butterscotch cookies take just about 10 minutes to put together.

Begin by combining the sugars, oil and butter. Add eggs and beat until fluffy. From there you will add the dry ingredients along with the almond.

Last but not least, add the chips and combine well.

NOTE: The key to making the cookies look pretty is to add a few chocolate chips on top of the scooped or rolled cookie dough. 😉

Bake for 7-9 minutes and voila – a delicious cookie that you’ll want to eat a dozen of.

Cookie Questions?

Can you make these AHEAD OF TIME? Yes! You can make the dough up to 24 hours in advance. Just cover and place in the fridge and let them come closer to room temp before rolling into balls and baking.

STORING is also very easy. Just place in airtight container or Ziploc bag and keep on the counter for 3-5 days (if they can last that long). Adding a piece of bread to the container can also keep them soft.

Can you FREEZE cookie dough? Of course! Roll the extra dough into balls and freeze them in an airtight container. When you want to use them simply pull out the desired amount, let thaw, and bake according to the recipe directions.

    I was pretty brain dead when I made this and accidently used 1 cup butter instead of a half a cup and they still came out awesome. I cant wait to make them right lol. I love anything with butterscotch or almond extract. Not enough recipes call for butterscotch and every time I make something with them people say “OH I LOVE BUTTERSCOTCH!”

    1. It’s so true! I forget how much I enjoy butterscotch too. So glad you loved the cookies (even with the extra butter)!
