Sunday Sweets – White Chocolate Butterscotch Chip Cookies

While I don’t eat many sweets, I really enjoy baking!  I’m pretty sure that I had the Toll House cookie recipe memorized by the time I was 12.  As a result, I’m always on the lookout for a new cookie recipe, which is part of why I love Pinterest.  I found a recipe for White Chocolate Butterscotch Chip Cookies, that I couldn’t wait to try out…

I gathered the ingredients: 1 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of softened butter, 1/2 cup of vegetable oil (I used canola oil), 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract, 3 cups of flour, 1/2 a bag of white chocolate chips (about 1 cup), 1/2 a bag of butterscotch chips (about 1 cup).

When I had all of my ingredients, supplies and equipment put together I combined the butter and sugar (which is the standard beginning to any good chippy cookie recipe).  Then I added in the oil and eggs.  Once the oil is fully combined, I added the vanilla and almond extract.

In standard cookie recipe format, I combined the dry ingredients in a separate bowl.  I added the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

When all of the dry ingredients were combined, I added them a little at a time into the sugar/butter mixture.

When the batter was fully mixed together, it was time to add in the chips.

Time to bake the cookies!  I lined a jelly roll pan with parchment paper and scooped the raw cookie dough into balls.  Then I put them into a preheated 350 degree oven for 12-14 minutes.  (The original recipe called for 7-10, but my oven, or my cookie size, needed additional time.)

They smelled so good when they came out!  I just had to sample a few fresh from the oven.
