    I did some baking over the weekend with my little guy. He LOVES to help me bake cookies on Sunday. It’s become a weekly tradition, which has been fun for all of us. We bake and then the hubs gets to be our taste tester. He definitely doesn’t complain. ;) Yesterday we made my good friend Kristyn’s white chocolate butterscotch cookies. These butterscotch cookies are quite delicious, I just had to share the recipe with you! I just tweaked a couple things.

    These butterscotch cookies are so easy to make and are unbelievably good. I’m usually not one to pick butterscotch for my go-to cookies, but these will definitely be on our regular rotation from now on. They are super soft and taste great the next day. It’s nice to mix up the ordinary chocolate chip every once in awhile. Definitely try them next time….you won’t regret it!

    Quick tips about these butterscotch cookies

    • Before baking, I like to add extra chips to the tops of the cookie. It makes them look just a little better. :)
    • Make sure to beat in one egg at a time.
    • Don’t skip out on the almond extract…this extra ingredient is what helps to make the butterscotch cookies taste so yummy!
    • Allow the butterscotch chip cookies to set on the pan for 2-3 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.
    • Want to make this the ultimate dessert? Serve with some vanilla ice cream, a dollop of whipped cream and drizzle some caramel sauce on top. YUM!
