Chocolate Chip Butterscotch Pecan Cookies

>

I’m going to keep this short today. You see, yesterday we learned that Jesse will have to go back to China before Thanksgiving. So, yesterday (Thursday), I decided to host our Thanksgiving early so he could be a part of it. On Saturday. Start to finish, planning, prepping, eating in 48 hours. Am I crazy, maybe? So like I said, I’m keeping this post short because I have a lot to do today. (If I can pull this off, I’ll be posting about next week!)

The good news is that these cookies don’t need a lot of fluffy filler descriptions. They were almost life changing for me. I thought I didn’t like butterscotch. But I do. Even more so when paired with chocolate and pecans in the perfect chocolate chip cookie The outside of the cookie has almost a crisp shell and the inside is chewy and delicious. Every bite with a butterscotch chip is like biting into cookie dough concentrate. So try these. TODAY!!

Chocolate Chip Butterscotch Pecan Cookies

Ingredients
1 3/4 cups all purpose all purpose
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp kosher salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar (pref. dark brown)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg
3/4 cup butterscotch chips
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup pecans, chopped (fine or course, your call)
coarse salt, optional for sprinkling (I forgot)

Directions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and kosher salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of a standing mixer, beat together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and egg and beat again for about 30 seconds. Turn the mixer down to a low speed and slowly add the flour, mix just until incorporated. Add the butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, and pecans and stir to combine.

Using a medium cookie scoop (or rolling 2 tablespoons into a ball), place the dough 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes. No more than 11 minutes! The edges should have just a touch of golden brown and the tops should not look wet, but they should still feel soft to the touch.

  1. >You crazymofo!! Just kidding, these cookies don't need any extra fluff. Mmmm, and I love that you textured the parchment paper. You go with your badass food styling skills. Good luck tomorrow, and I know everything that your turkey feast will be EPIC!!!

  2. >Your meal will be amazing! And as for these cookies…the photos alone are life-changing. Yummmmm. :)

  3. >You are amazing and kind of insane! but the plus side is that you'll have an entire Thanksgiving feast to post BEFORE thanksgiving, which is the food blogger ideal, right? Instead of the rest of us (cough me) who will have no idea what they're cooking until Thanksgiving morning and thus will have no "here's what you should make for Thanksgiving!" posts.

    I want these cookies. In my belly. So bad.

  4. >These look amazing! I can't wait to find an excuse to make them!
