Chocolate Chip Butterscotch Cookies


You guys. Something amazing happened. THESE COOKIES TURNED OUT AWESOME!

It’s all thanks to Pinterest, really. One of the most wonderful ladies I work with brought these cookies and they were amazing. Today, when I decided to make cookies, I knew this was the only recipe for me.

In case you haven’t been following my blog, I really really really really can’t bake or cook, but especially bake. Usually everything is dry and overdone, EVEN IF I only bake them for like half the time they list.

I don’t know what it is. But these cookies turned out PERFECTLY. You know a recipe has got to be magical if even I can make them taste good.

Here’s a link to the pin. Below is the recipe with my modifications, the original of which comes from here:

3/4 c. unsalted butter, softened
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar (I used 2 parts Splenda, 1 part real sugar! You couldn’t even tell!)
1 egg
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. all purpose flour
2 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1/2 c. butterscotch chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. She has a bunch of other directions listed on her website, but I didn’t pay attention to these while measuring out the ingredients, so I had everything all in one bowl before I realized I was apparently supposed to sort things and add them in at separate times. Haha, oops. BUT! They still turned out fabulous!! It’s like the recipe you can’t mess up!!

3. The cookies only apparently need 8-10 minutes! I put them in for 9 each and when I pulled them out, I was on the verge of tears because they looked completely under done. I trusted in the recipe though (she says absolutely no longer than 10 minutes) and after sitting for about 5 minutes once I took them out of the oven…they are PERFECT. I swear it. Can you tell I’m obsessed?

I wrapped up about six of them in a cup, then tied it off with a pink ribbon! The paper has a quote from John 13:35, and I blotted out the phone numbers. I love making cute crafts like these! I dropped them off at a house of a girl I go to church with and hopefully she (and you) loves this recipe as much as I do!
