butterscotch-and-chocolate-chip-cookies-wHere’s a delicious cookie that combines two of my favorite things: butterscotch + chocolate = Awesome!  It has a super sweet flavor that you can’t resist.  This cookie is yummy and it’s easy to make, so lets get started. Note: this cookie really is awesome, so if you don’t want to eat a bunch of them, you need to have a plan to share them with your friends and neighbors.

Mix together two sticks of softened margarine, 1 cup granulated sugar, and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Cream them together until they have a light fluffy texture.

Now here’s a little trick to guarantee that the cookies have picture perfect chips on them: when the cookies come out of the oven, while they are still warm, place some butterscotch chips and chocolate chips on top of them.  Now sit back and enjoy a cookie with some cold milk.
