The Perfect Butterscotch, Chocolate and Pecan Cookies
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 12
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
  2. Melt butter in the microwave for 30 seconds, it should only melt a third of the way.
  3. In the bowl of your mixer add the melted butter, brown sugar, milk, vanilla extract and mix for about 3 to 5 minutes until light and fluffy. Add the egg and mix until well incorporated.
  4. In a bowl mix together the flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly add the flour mixture, half a cup at a time and mix on slow speed, scraping the sides as needed. Add more flour, a tbsp at a time if mixture is too soft.
  5. Add the butterscotch chips, chocolate chips and pecans and mix until well incorporated.
  6. Using ¼ cup measuring cup, scoop out ¼ cup of the cookie dough at a time, roll into a ball and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining cookie dough, make sure you leave enough space between the cookies, about 3 inches.
  7. Top the cookies with additional chocolate, butterscotch chips and pecans, so they'll look beautiful.
  8. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, additional minutes may be required because of size of cookies, so bake until lightly golden, no more than 13 minutes.

    Hello Jo:

    I am preparing these delicious looking cookies and notice your neglected to incorporate the butter in the instructions, and you included baking soda in the ingredients, but then used baking powder in the instructions. I have ingredients on stand-by and patiently await your clarification. If I misread something, I apologize in advance. Thank you!

    These cookies look delicious. I love that the recipe uses just brown sugar to make them nice and chewy. Definitely going to try them out soon!
