While tweaking another recipe to boost the flavour and remove the nuts, I created this delicious cookie. Crispy, chewy, chocolatey, with just the right hit of butterscotch.

"Excellent chocolate butterscotch flavor. Will be a definite family favorite."

- Pumpkin77


Are you making this? 
12 oz chocolate chips (not milk chocolate) - you could u
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp instant coffee granules
3/4 c all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 Eggs
1 c white sugar
1/4 c dark brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 c butterscotch chips

Original recipe makes 12 Servings



Preheat oven to 325F and line a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper.

Using a double boiler (or not), melt together the chocolate, butter and coffee granules. Set aside to cool.

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

Beat the eggs (I used my stand mixer, but an electric hand mixer would work) and slowly add the sugars. Beat for a few minutes until light coloured. Add the cooled chocolate mixture and beat until smooth. Scrape down the bowl and add the vanilla.

On low speed (or by hand) add in the flour mixture and butterscotch chips until just combined.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto prepared sheets (the batter is thick and sticky), about 2 inches apart. Bake one sheet at a time for 15-18 minutes, until the cookies are set at the edges and still slightly squidgy in the centre (they will take on a crackled appearance).

Cool on a wire rack (slide the parchment onto it to make it easier), and enjoy.

It should read (after the chocolate chips in the ingredients) - 'You could use good quality chocolate instead.' We can't use high end chocolate because we have yet to find any safe for our son. He has a nut allergy. So I create these recipes using what we have available to us. [I posted this recipe.]
