Double Chip Cookies

Found this recipe in the June/July 2011 Taste of Home: Simple & Delicious magazine. I had not made anything new in ages. My daughter and her family are staying with me. They moved here from Kansas. As soon, as they have enough money saved they will get a place of their own. Since being here, Kelly has done almost all the cooking and cleaning which is wonderful!

My grandchildren, Austin and Samantha helped me make these cookies. Samantha cracked her first egg! She was excited. It is a really easy recipe. We have several more recipes out of this edition picked out to make! This recipe is yummy good!

Double Chip Cookies


1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup butterscotch chips


In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. Gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in the chocolate and butterscotch chips.

Drop by rounded tablespoons 2 inches apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown (tops will feel soft). Cool for 3 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.

Yields: 2 1/2 dozen
