Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Butterscotch Cookies

This is what happens when you are cheap and you go to the grocery store hungry.

Ok that’s not really what happens.  What happens is you buy butterscotch chips that are 50% off, then rack your brain for 2 weeks trying to figure out what to make with them.  Don’t worry if this happens to you make cookies.  Cookies are generally a good idea.

adapted from Food Network

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a large bowl, cream together brown sugar, butter and peanut butter until smooth.  Beat in egg and vanilla extract.  Add whole wheat flour, baking soda and salt until almost combine.  Fold in butterscotch chips.

Form dough into golf ball sized balls, place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and flatten slightly.  Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden on the bottom.  Place on a cooling rack to cool.  Then serve!

Makes about 20 cookies.

In other news, these cookies were the first thing I made in my new kitchen.

Then I roasted vegetables, made another avocado pie and make an EPIC birthday cake for a co-worker’s bday tomorrow.

Slowly but surely, I’m catching up.  What should I make next?
