These Peanut Butter Butterscotch cookies may have changed my life forever, no joke. It all started a couple weeks ago when Amanda and I were cruising around San Diego and popped into the famous “Spread” Restaurant. It has been featured on The Best Thing I Ever Ate on Food Network and now I completely see why! They specialize in making their own creative gourmet peanut butter spreads that are beyond your wildest imagination :) I would never believed it until I took my first spoonful. It was all over from there. I chose the butterscotch gourmet peanut butter spread and the white chocolate pretzel….swoon!
Here’s the cute little container. This little baby will cost you $10, but worth every lick. So, here’s why my cookie was created. I did NOT use this spread in my cookies, but put my own ingredients in. I had to have the whole tub to myself
Start by melting butterscotch chips over a double broiler until melted.
Cream your butter and sugars.
Add your melted butterscotch chips and Peanut Butter
Add your egg and mix it up!
Now time for your dry ingredients.
Roll each scoop of cookie dough into sugar.
Place onto a cookie sheet and time to bake. 9-11 minutes at 350 degrees F.
No kidding, my favorite cookie to date! Enjoy!
Peanut Butter Butterscotch Chippers
1 stick softened butter
1/2 Cup brown sugar
1/2 Cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 Cups smooth peanut butter
1 Cup melted butterscotch chips
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 Cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 Cup butterscotch chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Melt butterscotch chips over a double boiler until melted. Add melted butterscotch chips and peanut butter to beaten butter and sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla.
2. Place flour, baking soda and salt in bowl; mix to combine. Add to wet ingredients until just combined then pour in butterscotch chips. Using a cookie scoop, scoop dough, roll in sugar then place onto baking sheet. Press tops with tines of a fork if desired. I did it both ways and both are great. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until cookies are cooked through. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
