Peanut Butter Butterscotch Cookies


This recipe was born from a desire to use up some ingredients in my pantry. I had an assortment of leftover mix-ins and decided to make some cookies out of the ingredients. The results were a pretty delicious cookie worthy of a tall glass of milk. I often find peanut butter cookies to be terribly dry and crumbly, but the addition of bits of brickle and butterscotch chips in the cookie and a little extra butter help to temper that tendency. I added some peanut butter chips as well which add an extra hit of peanut butter flavor. Does peanut butter make these healthy?? Oh well!

Yield about 20 large cookies


  • 10 tablespoons softened, unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup creamy peanut butter (I love the natural variety)
  • 2/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups all flour (I love Bob’s Red Mill Pastry flour)
