Butterscotch Cookies Recipe

    Table of Contents


    • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
    • 1 cup packed brown sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips


    Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

    In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.

    Beat in the eggs, one at a time, ensuring each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next. Then, mix in the vanilla extract.

    In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

    Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

    Gently fold in the butterscotch chips until evenly distributed throughout the dough.

    Using a cookie scoop or a tablespoon, drop rounded balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.

    Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden brown.

    Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely.

    Once cooled, enjoy your delicious homemade Butterscotch Cookies with a glass of milk or your favorite hot beverage!

    These cookies are sure to be a hit with family and friends. Enjoy!
