Fudgy Toffee Butterscotch Cookies
These were a super tasty cookie gift and easy to make! I wish I’d taken time to save some of the more attractive ones for my photo but alas, this is all I ended up with! Enjoy!
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened to room temp
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup Hershey’s cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup milk
3/4 cup butterscotch chips
3/4 cup heath bar toffee bits
Spray baking sheet with nonstick spray or cover with parchment paper. Set aside.
In stand mixer, beat the butter on medium speed until light & creamy. Add both sugars & vanilla and beat until smooth. Add egg and beat again until smooth.
In a separate large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder and cocoa. Add 1/2 of the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Stir in milk. Add the second 1/2 of the flour mixture. Mix well. Chill dough for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Scoop the chilled dough by tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12-13 minutes and let the cookies cool completely on the cookie sheet between batches.
