Butterscotch & Chocolate Chip Cookies

Saturday, January 11, 2014

Hello friends :-) 

It's been quite a long time since I posted a recipe here but I took a minor hiatus from baking because my family kept telling me that the things I baked were horrible and I suppose I was a bit dented from what they said. I honestly feel like my baked goods aren't that bad and in fact, if my friends are telling the truth, they are actually good! (Thank you so much y'all for giving me back my confidence) I have a feeling my family just doesn't want me to think that baking can be an actual career for me but anyway this year, the first two things I tried baking (a butterscotch &chocolate mousse cake and these cookies of the same flavour profile) were actually quite successful and my family said they were "not bad" - I don't know, they just never tell me that they are "good" which is upsetting but it works for me too as long as they don't say they are "bad". 

So I'm going to share my recipe for the cookies here! Also because Waddle House Comm '14 & Channel 5 affirmed that the cookies were quite nice (I am very touched guys) when I brought some for them when I visited during Orientation (which I will blog about soon). I am a very happy kid so here's how you make:


1. 320g flour
2. 1 teaspoon baking powder
3. 1 teaspoon salt
4. 250g butter
5. 300g sugar
6. 1.5 teaspoon vanilla extract
7. 1 egg
8. 100g Butterscotch chips (Not readily available in Singapore, I got mine at nex's Cold Storage and online, I heard Bugis' Cold Storage stocks them too but prepare yourself for disappointments at times) 
9. 100g Chocolate chips 

(Feel free to use more butterscotch & chocolate chips - especially butterscotch because they are insanely delicious and they'll never ever spoil a recipe - I used way more than 100g each if I'm not wrong because they are so good)

1. Preheat your oven to 190 degree Celsius.  
2. Mix your dry ingredients together (i.e. the first three ingredients in the list above) and set it aside

2. Beat your room temperature butter with the sugar

3. Beat it till light and fluffy

4. Add your egg and vanilla extract at this point and mix well 

5. Add your flour mixture and fold it in gradually till everything's combined properly

6. Stir in your butterscotch and chocolate chips (and try your best not to eat all of them beforehand) 

7. Mix well :-) 

8. Scoop out teaspoons of the batter and plonk them on the baking sheet lined with baking paper - they'll spread out significantly in the oven so do make sure there is ample space around each blob of batter

9. Bake them in the oven for 10 minutes (or until they brown at the edges) 
10. Take them out and place them on a cooling rack to cool before consuming

And there you have it - crumbly, buttery, cookies with melt in the mouth morsels of chocolate and butterscotch in between bites. It's insanely good :-) And butterscotch chips are amazing - I have a feeling they are going to be a staple in my baking even though they are a bit more difficult to find and on the pricey side. A bag of butterscotch chips cost $10 compared to $4 for a bag of chocolate chips of the same quantity or even more but I feel like the result is really worth it. 

And the aroma of these cookies as you bake them is just incredible. I absolutely love butterscotch and they're really really different from chocolate chips. I mean, come on, chocolate chip cookies are a great classic but butterscotch chip cookies just takes things to an entirely new level.

Yum :-)
