Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Cookies

Butterscotch Chocolate Chip CookiesWhen I saw the Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies on Cook Like a Champion, I was inspired.  I had a package of butterscotch candies from a holiday gift basket we had received and they seemed destined to be added to cookies.  Either that or I turn into a grandmother and hand them out to little children.  These cookies turned out beautifully.  The candies add such a nice flavor to the cookies.  Miss F gave them two solid thumbs up.
Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup unsalted butter, softened
¼ cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 egg
¾ teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup chopped butterscotch candies
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350º. Line a baking sheet with parchment or a Silpat and set aside. Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.

In the bowl of stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat butter and sugars together on medium speed until smooth. Add egg, beat well. Add the vanilla and mix well. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed.

Gradually add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, mixing on low speed until just combined. Using a rubber spatula, stir in butterscotch pieces and chocolate chips. Using a cookie scoop, place dough onto prepared pan, spacing about an inch or so apart. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until edges are golden brown. Allow to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes, then cool completely on a wire rack.
