Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Cookies

Get ready for a mouthwatering delight with these chewy, buttery butterscotch chocolate chip cookies with a touch of cinnamon! Packed with butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, and, if you like, some chopped walnuts. What’s the icing on the cake? They’re finished with a sprinkle of flaky sea salt. These cookies are seriously irresistible!


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) of melted butter
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and line two baking trays with parchment paper. Set them aside.
  2. Begin by melting the butter over low heat. Then, in a large bowl, whisk together the slightly cooled melted butter, dark brown sugar, white sugar, and brown sugar for about a minute until they’re nicely combined.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla, and keep on whisking.
  4. Gently fold in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt using a spatula. Mix until just combined.
  5. Now, it’s time to mix in the butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, and, if you like, the chopped pecans.
  6. Scoop out 6 cookie dough balls onto each tray at a time. Bake them for 12-15 minutes or until the edges have a light golden brown color.
  7. For some extra oomph, top each cookie with more chocolate and pecans, if desired. And here’s the secret weapon: sprinkle a bit of flaky sea salt on each cookie (it’s optional, but highly recommended). Allow the cookies to cool on a rack, and then dive into cookie heaven! 🍪😋👌
