Week 28~Brown Butter Butterscotch Pecan and Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies


So, my daughter thinks the name of this cookie is too long.  I’m not sure what to call them other than delicious!  I made these to take to my friend’s house and they did not disappoint.  I actually got a text from her husband the next day telling me that these cookies were divine, so no matter what my daughter thinks of the name they are a keeper.  I hope you enjoy these as much as my friend’s hubby did!!



Brown Butter Butterscotch Pecan and Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1, 11oz. package butterscotch chips
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped, pecan pieces

What to do…

  1. Cook butter in a medium sauce pan over medium heat, stirring often, until it foams and then turns brown, roughly 5-8 minutes.
  2. Remove from the heat and pour into a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer.
    Let cool for about 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, and kosher salt together and set aside.
  4. Add the brown sugar and granulated sugar to the brown butter. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat until incorporated.
  5. Add eggs and vanilla, increase mixer speed to medium high. Mix until mixture lightens slightly and begins to thicken.
  6. Reduce mixer speed to low and add dry ingredients and beat to combine.
  7. Stir in butterscotch chips, chocolate chips and pecan pieces.
  8. Set dough aside and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  9. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  10. After the dough has been sitting for 30 minutes, form dough into roughly ping pong sized balls. I used a small cookie scoop.  Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet, leaving a few inches between the dough balls.
  11. Bake for 9-11 minutes.
  12. Allow to baked cookies to cool on cookie sheets for a few minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
