Nestle Toll House Butterscotch Chip Cookies

This is another tasty cookie recipe, if you like butterscotch. I made a few changes, listed in italics. I found this recipe on


2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

3/4 cup sugar (white)

3/4 cup brown sugar (I used light)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup butter

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

2 eggs

2 cups butterscotch chips (I used 1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips and 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips)

1/8 cup shredded coconut

1/3 cup crushed cashews


In a small bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and salt, and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream the sugars and butter (softened) together, adding the vanilla.

Add the eggs one at a time.

Add the flour mixture.

Add the butterscotch chips (and the rest of the ingredients if you are using the coconut and cashews).

Drop by spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 375F for 8-10 minutes.

Note: I baked the first batch for 10 minutes and I thought they came out pretty crunchy. The bottoms were almost too brown. I baked the next batch at 300F for 22 minutes, and those came out chewier and tastier.
