I’m sort of on a brown sugar kick lately. More people should learn to love brown sugar because it’s one of the most under-appreciated baking ingredients. Well, that and baking soda, but that’s pretty important. Anyway, on to the cookies! These brown sugar butterscotch cookies are melt-in-your-mouth delicious when baked properly. Even if you don’t like butterscotch, you will like these (that’s what happened to Andrew when he tried them). Butterscotch can be an acquired taste because it’s very sweet and some people don’t like that, but it balances so well with the brown sugar that you would never even notice. Trust me, they’re wonderful. As always, I ate most of them before I brought them to work to get rid of them (my coworkers must hate me by now).

Ingredients (makes 12-15 cookies):

  • 3/4 cup butter, soft
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips

Cream together the softened butter and brown sugar. You can totally substitute light brown sugar here, but I really like the taste of dark brown sugar to compliment the butterscotch. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl, and slowly mix it into the wet mixture. Stir in the butterscotch chips.

Roll the dough into balls about 1 1/2 inch wide – these cookies don’t have a wide spread, which keeps them thick and soft, but it also means that you want to flatten the balls a little on a cookie sheet prior to baking. Bake on 350 for 8-10 minutes until the edges begin to brown very lightly. I baked my first batch for too long because I couldn’t see the browning, so be sure to remove them promptly for best results.
