25 Days of Christmas in Cookies

Day 2: Butterscotch Chocolate Cookies

  I have to say, these are my new favorite cookie! I made these on the large side, and they are so rich that one satisfies the sweet, chocolately cravings. However, you can't have just one! Believe me, I know--I tried. :) The butterscotch pairs so fantastically with the rich chocolate flavor. Next time, I am definitely going to have to double the recipe! 

    3/4 cup all-purpose flour
    3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp kosher salt
    3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
    1 cup sugar
    2 eggs
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1 1/4 cup butterscotch chips, plus additional 1 Tbsp

  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease your cookie sheets and set aside.

Beat together butter and sugar until it is pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until they are combined.


  In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. 

  Slowly, about a cup at a time, add the flour-cocoa mixture to the butter mixture. Mix until it is just combined. 

  Fold in the 1 1/4 cup butterscotch chips.

  Using rounded spoonfuls, drop onto the greased cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Press 3 to 4 additional butterscotch chips into the tops each cookie. 

  Bake at 375 degrees F for about 10 to 12 minutes, depending on size of cookies.

  Let stand a few minutes on the cookie sheets to firm up a bit, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Enjoy with a nice glass of ice cold milk!
