I LOVE butterscotch! I must be a 75 year old lady because I love it in every form- even those little hard candy discs that you only see little old ladies eat. Yup. I’m all about it. Let me tell y’all about the amount of self control it takes to not devour a dozen of these cookies… it’s a lot of will power. If you too love butterscotch, then this is the perfect recipe for you and if you don’t know whether you get down with butterscotch like that- give it a go.
This recipe is a pretty simple one with an intermediate skill level according to Nestle (I beg to differ). Seems more basic to (not to offend anyone’s baking skills). For this recipe I want to talk about the following things- REAL vanilla, the scoop, the measuring cups, and fresh sugar.
Vanilla- REAL vanilla is absolutely hands down where it’s at. Imitation vanilla is not my thing. Real vanilla offers a more true vanilla flavor. Yes, it’s a little more pricey than imitation but it is oh, so worth it! If you or anyone you know frequents Mexico have them grab you a bottle! Vanilla is far cheaper in Mexico than in the United States and you won’t be sacrificing any of the flavor. Not to mention you will get a MUCH larger bottle of it. I can remember my mother having giant bottles of vanilla from Mexico when I was growing up.
Next let’s talk about the tools- the scoop and measuring cup. I absolutely LOVE using my Pampered Chef scoop when it comes to cookies. I love that I can consistently get the same size and shape with a quick little swoop (call me OCD, blame the military) and it releases batter with a little squeeze of the handle. It’s hands down, one of my favorite kitchen items! For these cookies I used their medium sized scoop. It allows you to easily bake a dozen at a time on a regular sized cookie sheet. Next- I absolutely adore my measuring cups. My measuring spoons are the same style. I found them at a Home Goods in San Diego a few months ago. They are perfect! They’re sturdy and cute and feel like they’re going to last me a very long time!
One last thing- I absolutely love the feel of fresh sugar through my measuring cups or spoons. It’s so smooth and light. Has anyone else noticed this or love fresh sugar as much as I do?
