Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 8 min
Ready in: 23 min
Yields: This recipe made 15 good sized cookies



  • 2 Cups Butterscotch Chips
  • 2 1/4 Cups Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 3/4 Cup White Sugar
  • 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 Cup Butter
  • 2 Large Eggs

Baking Cookies


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Combine the flour, salt, and baking soda in a small bowl. Ensure that these ingredients are completely mixed and set off to the side. Hint: I usually do not add the entire amount of salt that a recipe calls for.
  3. Cream together the brown sugar, white sugar and the butter/margarine in another bowl. Do not melt the butter/margarine in the microwave. As the batter will become too runny. Some people like to replace some of the butter/margarine with apple sauce as a healthier alternative.
  4. Add the vanilla to the sugar and butter/margarine and mix well.
  5. Add one egg at a time to the sugar, butter/margarine mix. And mix well.
  6. Slowly add the flour mixture to the sugar, butter/margarine mixture. Ensuring that all ingredients are completely mixed together.
  7. Add the two cups of butterscotch chips to the mixture and mix well. Distributing the chips evenly throughout the batter. More or less chips can be used depending on your personal preferences.
  8. Spoon the dough onto a un-greased cookie pan. Making sure that the cookies are not placed too closely as they tend to spread out a little bit while baking.
  9. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Depending on your oven this cooking time may vary so keep an eye on your cookies.
  10. Take out of the oven and allow to cool. And enjoy your homemade cookies!

Baking Tips

  1. A wire cheese cutter can be used to cut chilled cookie dough.
  2. Rinse measuring cup in hot water before using syrup, oil, or anything else sticky. This will help to prevent these ingredients from sticking to the sides.
  3. Dip knives in hot water when cutting marshmallows to help prevent them from sticking.
  4. How to tell if you baking soda is still good. Take a cup of hot water and add some baking soda too it. If it doesn't begin to fizz or only fizzes a little bit. Your baking soda may no longer be good.
  5. Adding a teaspoon of baking powder to mashed potatoes can help make them fluffy.
  6. Extracts must contain the natural flavor. Flavorings may contain artificial flavors.
  7. Toasting oatmeal in the oven before making oatmeal cookies can add some extra flavor.
  8. Ensure that you preheat your oven before baking anything.
  9. Never mix salt directly with yeast as this kills the rising action of the yeast.
  10. Store brown sugar with an apple sliced in half or a piece of bread to keep it moist. And prevent it from turning into a brick.
  11. Make sure that everything is mixed adequately, but do not over mix your baking!
  12. Wash your hands, fruits and vegetables before baking anything to protect your health.
  13. Remember all ovens may actually vary in temperature. Therefore making baking times vary as well. Try using an oven thermometer so you know exactly what temperature your oven is baking at.
  14. Ensure you have all the ingredients before you begin to bake.
  15. Line your cake pans with baking parchment to help remove your finished cakes with ease.
  16. Read all liquid ingredients at eye level. Unless the measuring device specifically states that it can be read from above.

      Reading the recipe made my mouth water. I love butterscotch cookies/brownies, but I can't bake! I'll share this instead and hope my friends make them. ;)
