I know. This is the third cookie recipe this week. However, in my defense, it’s been raining all week, and cookies are comfort food. The house smells so good, since all the windows have to be closed. Plus, these butterscotch cookies are little. You’re probably thinking, what does that have to do with anything?

Anyways, these cookies are awesome. They are chewy and crunchy, (especially on day two), they taste great dipped in my morning coffee for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, whatever!

Cook Time 15 minutes

Chewy on the inside, crunchy on the outside, these Butterscotch Cookies only get better with time! You'll love the sugar coating!

Ingredients

  • 12 Tbsp butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar, divided
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2½ cup flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar

Instructions

  1. Heat butter in small skillet on medium heat. Allow to froth up, then brown. Here is a great article on how to brown butter (for today's cookies you want the butter to JUST begin the browning process) Remove from heat.
  2. In large mixing bowl, add browned butter and  1 3/4 cups brown sugar. Mix on medium speed, add salt, eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking soda and baking powder.
  3. In small bowl, mix 1/4 cup reserved brown sugar and 2 Tbsp granulated sugar together. Using a 1 Tbsp small scoop, scoop up dough (will be consistency of play-doh) and roll into a ball. Then roll in sugars. Place on cookie sheet with parchment paper. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 10 minutes. Enjoy (and don’t forget the milk)!!!
