"I've been making these for years. They are delicious. I make a bigger batch and use an entire bag of chocolate chips as well as an entire bag of butterscotch chips."

"I haven't tried these yet, but it's basically the Toll House chocolate chip cookie cut in half minus the white sugar and added butterscotch chips.

Brown sugar produces a softer brown cookie while the white produce a crunchier and lighter colored cookie. If your cookie comes out flat...1. Make sure you use butter not margarine. 2. Make sure your butter is not melted. It needs to be softer with a bit of chill to it. 3. Increase your flour 1/4 cup. 4. Refrigerate your dough for at least 30 mins to help reduce the butter from melting fast and spreading flat. Refrigerating also gives it a better flavor.
I have A LOT of dark brown sugar I need to use up and this is a great idea! Thank you for sharing your family recipe and I'm so glad your step son enjoyed it with his fellow members! What a wonderful step mother you must be!"

"This is magnificent! They are great just with just chocolate chips, or with butterscotch. They're best warm, when the chips are gooey. This will always be my go-to cookie recipe!"

"Awesome recipe. I don't agree that it yields 2 and a half dozen though. I got about a dozen 2 inch cookies."

"These are great cookies. We eat plant based and they crossed over really well - used coconut oil instead of butter, flax seed egg instead of an egg and vegan chips. Sometimes the change over isn't great but this one was."

"These have quickly become one of my favorite cookie recipes. Have to make at least a double batch each time. But, I was wondering why they flatten out so much after letting them sit for 3 minutes after baking. I follow the recipe exactly, but they look more like the picture when they first come out of the oven. They get flatter and darker as they sit. Why is this?"

"The use of all brown sugar in this yummy cookie won my family over! This rich cookie dough made a wonderful base for cookie dough gifts. The small batches of dough fit nicely into medium sized deli containers. I wrote the directions on the outside of the containers. Perfect for chocolate, butterscotch and peanut butter chips a like."

"This made a great cookie. I adapted the recipe, though, in order to make it lower in fat and sugar. I used 1/4 c. Blue Bonnet light stick to replace 1/2 of the butter, then, since I didn't have the sugar twin brown sugar, did 1/4 c brown sugar and 1/2 c. splenda. I substituted 3/4 c. King Arthur White Whole Wheat flour plus 1/2 c. regular flour. Instead of salt, I just used 1 t. baking soda, and 8 oz. sugar free chocolate chips (1 1/3 c). I added 1/2 c. chopped pecans, but that would have been optional. I dropped by rounded teaspoons, still baked for 10-12 minutes, and it made 40 cookies. They were yummy! Thanks for the base recipe!"

"What WONDERFUL cookies! Some chocolate chip cookies are hard and crunchy but these are so soft and chewy and lite. I didn't add the butterscotch chips and they turned out just fine.

They might, however, need a bit more chocolate chips if you exclude the butterscotch chips.
I would definitely make this quick, delicious recipe again. FANTASTIC! This goes in my recipe box for sure!"
