This is the first batch of cookies that I made with the Basic cookie dough . The kids have been asking me to make this ever since I got the essence and the butterscotch chips. But somehow never got around to bake these.

The butterscotch chips that we get here are very different from the ones that come from abroad. Here they bubble up and melt and does not give a beautiful picture when baked. Nevertheless, they were voted as the best cookie by the kids so I am happy that it defects were not noted!

I used:
Makes- 12 cookies

Basic cookie dough – 1/5 portion weighing around 155grams
Butterscotch essence- 1/8 teaspoon
Butterscotch chips-1/8 cup

Take the dough in a bowl and add the butterscotch chips and essence. Mix gently .Do not over work the dough

Divide into 12 equal sized balls. Flatten the balls and place them on a lined baking tray. Teh cookies don’t spread much so can be placed a bit near each other.

Bake in a pre heated oven at 180 degree C for 10 minutes or till the edges turn light brown. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

Enjoy these delicious cookies with a cup of milk/ tea / coffee!


  • The quantity of essence will depend on the quality and brand. Check and add more only if needed.
  • The baking time will vary on the size and thickness of the cookies.
  • The cookies will be soft to touch as soon as they come out of the oven and will turn crisp after they cool. So be sure not to over bake the cookies

  1. Do the chip[s melt because of heat or is it just the quality you get? Though the butterscotch chips melted, cookies look amazing and want to grab some
