Chocolate Chip Butterscotch White Chocolate Cookie

Family Favorites


This is quite possibly my favorite cookie recipe! Originally found in a magazine in the early '90s, it was the Grand Prize Winner in a King Arthur baking contest.

Feel free to use your own personalized combination of chips. Other choices can include butterscotch, ( favorite!) cinnamon or cappuccino flavored chips.

I also like that it makes quite a lot, allowing me to freeze some or deliver to someone who needs a welcomed surprise! =)

How to Make Chocolate Chip Butterscotch White Chocolate Cookie


  1. Preheat oven to 350-375 degrees. Lightly grease baking sheet or use parchment. (Recipe says 375 degrees, but my oven bakes hot, so I bake at 350 degrees.)
  2. Beat together butter,sugars, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
  3. Using a blender or food processor, process the oats with the white chocolate until the oats are finely ground and the white chocolate is mostly ground.
  4. Add the oats and flour to the butter mixture. Then stir in the peanut butter or butterscotch chips, chocolate chips and chopped nuts.
  5. Drop by tablespoonfuls, 2" apart onto prepared baking sheets.
  6. Bake the cookies for about 11 minutes until they are just set. They may be barely starting to brown around the edges, but the tops won't yet be brown. Don't over bake! Remove from oven and cool.
