Butterscotch and White Chocolate Chip Cookies
We have a guest chef on the blog today and he's none other than my 10 year old son Noah. Both of my kids have caught the baking bug over the years; did they have much choice? ;)
One rainy day last week, Noah was rummaging through the cupboards for ingredients to bake something and he came up with this pretty good variation on a soft chocolate chip cookie. I was banned from the kitchen because he wanted to make them, "all by myself". I must say that he baked them perfectly and although I was skeptical, the butterscotch and white chocolate chips actually do complement each other quite well. Good job kiddo!
2 ½ cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup butter
¾ cup white sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
Add flour mixture to the creamed butter and sugar mixture along with:
½ cup butterscotch chips
½ cup white chocolate chips
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet that is lined with a silicone baking pad or parchment paper. Bake for about 10-12 minutes in a preheated 350 degree F oven. Allow the cookies to rest for 10 minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
