Butterscotch Chocolate Chunk Cookies
It was friday afternoon, and we were just sitting around so I decided to bake some cookies to get Kristen busy (that’s her). She’s really gotten into it lately, so of course, I want to encourage her. I wanted something quick, that she could help me mix, so I looked for a dropped cookie recipe and found this one at the Baking Bites site. Kitty brought me some butterscotch chips from the US, but I hadn’t browsed for recipes to use them until now. If you can’t get your hands on these, you can substitue them for white chocolate chips, or almonds, crushed macadamia nuts, raisins, whatever you want!
The recipe calls for chocolate chips, so if you have them… by all means, use them. I didn’t have any, so I used my baking chocolate brick. I cut out chunks using a large knife. (be careful!)
I highly recommend this recipe, you can use it as your base for any chocolate chip, or chocolate-nut cookie. It’s easy to make and a great way to entertain a bored kid.
