Butterscotch Cookies

Butterscotch Cookies, also known as Wookie Cookies, were a big hit at our house tonight as we celebrated Star Wars Day!  These cookies are rich and buttery with a nice chewy texture. butterscotch cookies 1

 I added chocolate chips to half the dough and loved the boost of flavor that the chocolate added.

 I whisked my dry ingredients together and set aside.

Next I creamed the wet ingredients together: 2 sticks butter- softened, 1 cup superfine brown sugar(simply pulse several times in a food processor until smooth), add in 2 whole eggs and 1 egg white, and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract.

  Dough needs to chill for a minimum of 30 minutes. I placed half of my dough onto wax paper to chill.

 I wanted to add some chocolate to the other half of the dough, so I added about a 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. How can you go wrong with chocolate!  Yum!

Incorporate the chocolate chips, then pour the dough onto wax paper, cover and chill.

 Once dough is chilled, I placed a medium scoop of dough onto cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes. Glitter Girl is a huge Star Wars fan! She was so excited to celebrate her favorite characters. Han Burgers for dinner and Wookie Cookies for dessert! I’m already excited to celebrate next year! So much fun!
