Butterscotch Cookies

This Butterscotch Cookies recipe is perfect to make ahead. Sometimes, we get so wrapped up in the holiday craziness between work, home, traffic (specially if you live just outside the city) that baking takes a second place. So, to avoid that, I like to make my cookie doughs ahead of time and freeze them.

Last year, I decided to start prepping for the holidays since mid November. This year I am a little behind, but tomorrow will be cookie dough making afternoon. I baked these delicious cookies on Christmas eve, in the early morning hours. To defrost them properly, I took them out of the freezer and into the fridge the night before.

Since they are still hard enough to make it slicing easy, I recommend turning the log on its side each time you slice. This will prevent you having cookies with a flat side. When I baked them, my entire house was smelling heavenly, a perfect way to start off Christmas eve!

Butterscotch Coffee

When I’m in the mood for a decadent hot beverage as the days get chillier, this is will be it.  I don’t know how I came across this recipe, I wasn’t looking for hot beverage recipes, but I’m so glad I did!

There is not much to it, just brew coffee as you normally would.  While that’s happening, set a small pot on the stove to melt butterscotch chips together with your milk.  Mix and enjoy this creamy caramel flavored coffee.

If you can’t find butterscotch chips (I haven’t seen them in Guatemala), you can substitute for white chocolate chips and add a few drops of caramel flavor (you can find it at Blossom in zone 10, Guatemala). I’m not making this up, I searched for butterscotch chip substitutes and this is the best alternative I could find, since butterscotch chips are actually a white chocolate compound base with butterscotch flavoring.

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.
