Peanut Butter, Butterscotch Cookies!


I have been wanting to make Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip cookies for quite some time, (I have been waiting for my Holiday exhaustion to pass), and I decided today was the day!

I checked my pantry and I only had Butterscotch Chips, I thought that might be a better match anyway, and it was. These are truly delicious and would make a great addition to your Christmas tray. I think I am going to make up a batch for my Paper Guy, Yard Guy, and my dog poo picker up Guy too! I think they would appreciate it!

1/2 cup (1 stick of butter softened)
11/2 cup Peanut Butter (either chunky or smooth)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 egg
1 1/4 cup AP flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup Butterscotch chips (I prefer the Guittard brand)

1 tsp Vanilla

In a large bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

Beat butter and peanut butter until smooth. Gradually add the sugars, beating to blend. Beat in egg and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture and butterscotch morsels.

Preheat oven to 375°F; line 2 baking sheets with parchment. Use hands to form dough into 1 1/2-inch balls. Place balls about 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.

Bake cookies until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Cool on sheets for 10 minutes, then transfer to racks to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.

Even though I am not a sweet eater, this cookie ranks as my favorite. A friend made these for me once, and I had a hard time sharing them they were so good! :-) Now I need to get something to wipe up the drool off of my screen. YUM!
