Butterscotch Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Butterscotch Chocolate Chunk Cookies are the perfect treat for fall!  The orange of the butterscotch chips and the brown of the chocolate chunks are beautiful autumn colors, then add the delicious cookie dough that wraps them all up together and that makes them truly… perfect!

I love to bake.  Cookies are awesome because they can go just about everywhere, they’re easy to transport, and everyone’s always SO happy to see them! We like to keep a bag of cookies in the freezer to put in school lunches or just to have handy for when that sweet tooth decides to pop in.

Butterscotch Chocolate Chunk Cookies are made even better with the sprinkling of sea salt on top~ it’s not necessary but it adds a little flavor pop that’s hard to beat!  You’ll be so glad you remembered to add it onto each dough ball before baking.

    Just made these – taking my last batch out of the oven now! So so good – and yes, I’ve already tested one (or two, but who’s counting!!). they are delish. I didn’t have a full cup of the butterscotch chips and didn’t want to open another bag so I just added a little bit of white chocolate chips!! They look and taste really good. Love love love all your stuff. Pinning!!!
