Ingredients For my real delicious butterscotch cookies

  • 225 g
    unsalted butter (room temp)
  • 100 g
  • 320 g
    all purpose flour, sifted
  • 2 g
  • 1/2 tsp
  • as needed
    sugar for decoration

How To Make my real delicious butterscotch cookies

  • 1
    Preheat oven 190ºC (370ºF) Chop the butter in small pieces, add sugar, salt and vanilla, and mix it with hands (no electric mixer or spatula).
  • 2
    When it´s incorporated, add flour and keep mixing with hands until the dough doesn´t stick to the sides of the bowl.
  • 3
    If you feel it very soft, place it into the fridge for 10 or 15 minutes before rolling out the dough.
  • 4
    Roll out the dough about 3-4mm height, and cut it with cookie cutters. Place the cookies in a tray leaving some space between, and you can add some sugar or dark sugar for more crunchiness. You don´t need to use parchment paper or grease your tray because of the butter in the dough.
  • As you can see, I like the cookies a bit darker, so you can leave them for 20 minutes or more in the oven. They´ll do great!
    Bake for about 17-19 minutes each tray, or until golden. Cool for 30 minutes before eating. These are great for coffee time.
