So... here is what I made:
One bowl Chocolate/Butterscotch Chip Cookies
- 1.5 cups of flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp. shortening
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup butterscotch morsels
Preheat oven at 375F. In your electric mixer bowl (mix flour, baking soda and salt, just whisk to incorporate, place that same bowl in your electric mixer, add the sugars and shortening and mix for about 2 minutes at medium speed (it should look crumbly) then add eggs one by one mixing well after each addition, finally add the vanilla extract mix until it's all incorporated (do not over-mix), stir in your chocolate and butterscotch morsels and drop on your cookie sheet -preferably lined with parchment paper- or you can lightly grease it. (I use a small ice cream scoop to drop and have them all be same size and shape - It's about 1 tbsp. of dough per cookie - ) Bake in preheated oven for 8-9 minutes or until edges are golden brown. ENJOY!
So... back to my story... When hubby saw the "butterscotch" in my cookies he said "what's that?" -Pointing at a butterscotch morsel-... I proudly said: "Butterscotch" (he bit the cookie and said nothing) I was like: "What's wrong?" "Oh! Nothing... I just hate butterscotch! but these are good regardless!" LOL! So ... he enjoyed his cookies with coffee last night! I tried one out of curiosity and actually LOVED THEM! I thought they were incredible, I was so proud of them we had to share again! hubby took them to his job and he's even had 6 already this morning! He says they are almost all gone and that everyone really liked them! So... I am glad I experimented with this... and it's good to know that hubby doesn't like butterscotch though! I am happy I didn't know before or I would've never tried making this!
