Well friends, this is the last day of Fall Cookie Week. Not to give myself a pat on the back, but I think this was probably the best FCW yet. It’s so interesting to look back at the photos, styling, and recipes of the past years to see how it’s grown and improved. I hope you are feeling the same and have really enjoyed this year’s FCW.

White Chocolate-Dipped Soft-Batch Butterscotch Cookies

I’ve gone back through each post from this week and added in every cookie link to the bottom. That way, if you’re ever looking for them, you can easily find them.

I also wanted to remind you that if you do try one of these recipes (no matter what time of the year) and feel inclined to snap a picture and share it, be sure to use #IBCFallCookieWeek so that I can find it and check it out. Thanks so much to those of you who have already shared your cookie creations!

Okay. On to the final recipe.

Ever since I was a child, I have loved butterscotch. I know, it’s a weird thing for a kid to like, but it was (and still is) one of my favorite flavors. Anytime we’d go to the Dairy Queen, I’d get my cone or dilly bar dipped in butterscotch. Yum!

Because of this flavor crush, I decided to include a butterscotch recipe in FCW. I was inspired by this recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction. I obviously gave it a few tweaks and created these White Chocolate-Dipped Soft-Baked Butterscotch Cookies. (How’s that for the longest cookie name ever!?) Don’t worry, this recipe deserves it!

I was a little hesitant to try the recipe, but I’m so glad that I did. They are easily one of my new favorites, and this dough will be a go-to for years to come. These cookies are so soft and the flavor is on point.

Just as I finished these, my brother stopped by my house. After sampling them, he raved about how good they are. He can be a bit particular about food, so this was a huge compliment and a testament to their deliciousness.

While these cookies are good enough alone, I decided to step it up a notch and dip half of the cookie in white chocolate. It’s a simple step that doesn’t take too much time, but adds another layer of flavor and interest to an already wonderful cookie.

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cornstarch and salt. Set aside.
  • Then, in a medium-sized bowl, combine the melted butter and sugars until no lumps remain. Then mix in the egg and egg yolk. Finally, whisk in the vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix well with a spatula. Finally, fold in the butterscotch chips. Cover the dough and chill for at least two hours. (Do not skip the chilling.)
  • When the dough has cooled, remove it from the refrigerator. Then preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Roll about 2 tablespoons of the dough into a ball. Roll the balls so that they are taller, instead of wider. This will ensure that the cookies bake up thick. Place the balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Add some of your reserved butterscotch chips to the top of each dough ball for looks, if desired. Bake the cookies for 12 – 14 minutes. The cookies may seem soft or underbaked; however they will continue to bake on the cookie sheet. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for about 10 minutes. Then move them to a wire rick to cool completely.
  • Once cooled, prepare your white chocolate dip. In a double boiler (a microwave will work as well, melt your chips along with 1 tablespoon of vegetable shorting. Make sure all of the chips have melted and the chocolate is smooth. Dip half of each cookie into the chocolate; then place on wax paper until the chocolate cools and firms.

  1. So, my sweetheart and I love butterscotch, and prefer white chocolate over anything milk or dark chocolate and was extremely excited about these cookies. Especially since soft was in the mix. However…,My 1st batch came out very flat. Which usually for me means add more flour since I am at a higher elevation. So I added almost a quarter cup more flour to remain8ng dough. Did this gradually…needless to say I could have added a half cup (and almost did) on last batch…. still flat.

    They are soft but when you hear ‘Soft’ in a recipe I get the cake thickness of soft picture in my head. Not the flat molasses soft of patmeal cookies. So am disappointed. But am going today with recipe in future to see if I can’t tweek it so they look fluffy and soft. Cookie does taste good though. Thank you, Jen

    1. Hi there! So sorry you had troubles. I’m not sure what could have happened. I’ve seen others make these with success. I’m glad you enjoyed the flavor though!

  2. Hello Michael Wurm, JR I just have to tell you these cookies looked so good, and so I am making them for Christmas this year, they are fantastic, so good and came out beautiful, I only wish my husband were here, he would of loved them however I just wanted you to know these cookies are awesome and I think i will be making them more often and of course for christmas every year! Thank you so much for creating it and sharing it, this one is a winner thank you so very much!!!

  3. So: I made these. Hooray for trying something new! Here’s my impression:
    1. not really a ‘special’ cookie variation – taste like the tried and true oatmeal scotchies, without the oatmeal
    2. “Roll about 3 tablespoons of dough into a ball”?!!!! Krikey! I make all my cookies with a 1 TBSP scoop – for the first two batches I went a little crazy and made them 2 TBSP — those are some big cookies. For the rest I just used a single scoop.

    Now – onward — looking for new recipes to try and delight the kids with lunch box treats

  4. These cookies sound fabulous! I am thinking about doing these as a bar cookie (no dip as my in laws do not like chocolate). Would I still need to do the chilling time? Thanks!

  5. I have always LOVED butterscotch! I also got my ice creams dipped in it! TOO FUNNY! And, a favorite cookie around here, is the Oatmeal Scotchies! So, I’m right there with you!!! 😛 Can’t wait to try these!!! What a wonderful end to FCW! I think it’s time to fire up the oven!!! 😛

  6. All of the FCW recipes have been ones I now want to make. You seemed to hit my favorites….coconut, white choc, pecans, pb, caramel, pumpkin etc. I’m hoping that I can find the caramel apple cake mix somewhere so I can try out those cookies. I use a lot of cake mixes to make cookies, especially love the lemon ones – nice and tart. I’ve certainly enjoyed viewing your baking. Thanks!
