The best cookies are the softest cookies, right? Right! Have you had trouble trying to get soft, Crumbl-esque cookies made homemade, from scratch, and you just can’t seem to hack it? Well, we’ve got a secret ingredient in homemade baking that we will reveal later! For now, let’s get into the recipe and some beautiful pictures.
How do you make chocolate chip butterscotch cookies from scratch?
The ingredient list is pretty short and sweet, and most of the items are probably already in your home.
- 3 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 sticks of butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup lightly packed light brown sugar
- 2 tsp corn starch
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 1-1/2 cup semi-sweet baking chips (or dark chocolate chips)
- 1/4 cup butterscotch chips
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
- Grease or line a cookie sheet with butter wrappers or parchment paper
- In one bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth
- Then, add vanilla; add eggs, and beat well until entire mixture is smooth.
- In separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, sat, cornstarch, and cinnamon
- Combine dry ingredients into wet ingredients bowl, gradually beating together.
- Once combined, gently mix in chocolate chips and butterscotch chips.
- *BAKER’S HACK*: Reserve about a half cup total of your chips to “garnish” after cookies are done baking! This gives them the pretty, aesthetic look baker’s achieve.
- Chill dough for at least an hour, but no more than 24 hours (optional)
- Using a large spook, roll out dough into 1-inch “spheres” and spread evenly
- Bake for 11 minutes or until edges are golden brown. depending on your oven. High altitude (4000 ft or higher) may require a 14-16 minute bake, or until edges are golden brown
- Immediately after taking cookies out of the oven, gently press remaining chocolate chips into cookies
- Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from baking sheet
These cookies are super easy to make, and freezing leftover, uncooked cookies is a good way to preserve them so you can have more later! Because this is an option, I’ll often make a lot more cookies than I’m willing to eat so I can save some for later. Score!
