Butterscotch Delight Cookies with a Hint of Cinnamon

Relish in the comforting fusion of butterscotch and cinnamon with these delectable cookies. The added touch of sea salt amplifies their taste, making them a perfect treat for any occasion.


  • 2 ⅓ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter (melted and slightly cooled)
  • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg (room temperature)
  • 1 egg yolk (room temperature)
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cups butterscotch chips
  • A pinch of sea salt (optional)


  1. Preparation of the Dough:
    1. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a spacious bowl and set it aside.
    2. Utilizing a stand mixer or a hand mixer, blend the melted butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until it’s light and airy. This should take around 3 minutes.
    3. Gradually integrate the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract. Make sure to periodically scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl.
    4. Gently fold the dry mixture into the wet mixture, ensuring not to overmix. Hand-stir the butterscotch chips into the dough.
    5. Conceal the dough bowl and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or ideally, let it set overnight.
  2. Baking the Cookies:
    1. Preheat the oven to 350℉ and arrange a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    2. If the dough appears too stiff to mold, let it sit for about 10-15 minutes at room temperature.
    3. Employing a medium cookie scoop, shape the dough into balls, spacing them 2 inches apart on the prepared sheet.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges firm up and the centers remain tender.
    5. Allow the cookies to rest on the baking sheet briefly. If you’re in the mood for a flavor twist, lightly sprinkle some sea salt. Then, shift them to a wire rack to cool off entirely.

Serve these cinnamon-infused butterscotch cookies with your favorite beverage and savor the comforting, sweet flavor.
