Sunday night we had our yearly holiday party – a white elephant we lovingly refer to as Yankee Swap. Every year I try to make something a little different, so this year we tried a new type of cookie, a new punch, and a spinach dip. The other two recipes are coming soon, but I wanted to focus on what’s really important: cookies. I have a love-hate relationship with them. I hate making them, I love eating them. So I try over and over again to hate making them less (but you have to make each! one! separately! I like a cake situation, dump + done, amiright?!)
Now, I don’t love butterscotch the way some people do, but the feedback I got was if you like butterscotch, these are perfecto. If you don’t, I would sub half the butterscotch chips for chocolate, which is what I did with the second half of the batch. This recipe makes about three and a half dozen cookies, but you can make them even smaller – I am just an impatient cookie maker.
The full recipe is here. I would suggest you take these babies out a few minutes before you think you should, and you’ll end up with chewy and rich cookies that will disappear as quickly as they come out of the oven!
What’s your favorite type of holiday cookie? Have you begun hosting (and attending!) holiday parties yet?
