Eggless Butterscotch Cookies Recipe

Eggless Butterscotch Cookies Recipe
I was always looking for cookies that are buttery,soft and has a cracked top and this recipe is a keeper.The original recipe had choco chips and raisins,I replaced it with butterscotch chips modifying the recipe a bit and the cookies were superhit.The cookies were crunchy with a buttery flavour in each bite and the butterscotch flavour added more dept and essence.If you like butterscotch flavour then this recipe is a must try for you! Actually butterscotch chips should be just like chocochips with a melt in the mouth texture but the ones we get here are different, they have a nutty texture which also tastes good,we love it a lot so buy it quite often.

These are eggless and super simple to bake, so do try this and let me know..I am waiting! :)

My Notes:

  • Do not overbake, the biscuits will become hard.The cookies should be just golden and not browned.
  • I just refrigerate for 15mins as I wanted my cookies to spread out.
  • These cookies spread out so arrange them accordingly leaving enough space between each cookie.
  • You can replace butterscotch chips with choco chips and replace butterscotch essence with vanilla essence.
  • Refrigerating the dough for a while avoids spreading of cookies while getting baked.
  • I got around 15 small sized cookies.
  • If the dough is too sticky then grease the butter paper.I did not grease as there was no need.
  • The baking timing depends on the cookie size and thickness.If you are making a slighter thicker cookie then it might take 15 mins to get baked fully, so adjust the timing accordingly.
  • The cookies were too sweet for my tastebuds, but mittu didn't complain.
