Brown Sugar Butterscotch Crisps - one of 52 Cookie Recipes

Pin It Now!

Oh Boy Butterscotch Cookies...

But Not just ant butterscotch cookies.  These have a crispy crunchy outer shell while inside is sweet, buttery, chewy and hidden bits of delicious Butterscotch throughout.

These are such a winner!

I was looking for something a little new, something a little more grown up than a standard chocolate chip cookie.  I started with simply replacing the chips with the butterscotch chips.  Worked fine but just tasted like a chocolate chip cookie with butterscotch.  Not as good.

Then I recalled a crisp cookie I had at a cookie exchange recently.  It stood out as something memorable along side the soft chewy sugar cookies that dominated the choices.  I tracked down that recipe from a friend, added the butterscotch and viola...

A truly wonderful choice when you want something a little crispy, crunchy, sweet yet memorable cookie... with lots of hints of butterscotch!  A KEEPER!

But first I want to show off a couple of items I use to make my baking life easier.  A couple years ago I was gifted with my first Silipat.  A simple solution to non-stick pans that stick.  i have saved hundreds of dollars in Parchment paper costs, as well as hours of frustration while cleaning ... Take a look.


Enjoy indeed and keep scrolling down for the easy to follow recipe.
