How to Make Chocolate Chip Butterscotch Cookies
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Add butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla into a mixing bowl of a standing mixer and combine until light and fluffy.
Add the flour, baking soda, and salt into another bowl and whisk until combined.
Slowly combine the two mixtures. Little by little, add the flour mixture.
Take the mixing bowl of the standing mixer out and add in the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips, and use a rubber spatula or spoon to fold into the batter.
Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper and add the cookie dough to the sheet using a tablespoon. Place in the preheated oven for 11-15 minutes, or until the cookies are light brown and fully baked through.
Place the finished cookies onto a cooling rack and allow them to cool completely.

Is Butterscotch the Same as Caramel?
Butterscotch and Caramel are delicious together and by themselves. Even though they are so good and great for many desserts, they are different. Vanilla and sugar are two of the main ingredients in butterscotch and the difference with caramel is that it is made with white sugar instead of brown sugar.
How to Make Cookies Softer?
There are a few different ways to make cookies softer in texture. You can switch out a few ingredients if you want them chewier. Using brown sugar instead of white will help with moisture and therefore, make the cookies soft. Also, using shortening instead of regular butter will do you wonders as well. Another option is making sure to use baking powder instead of baking soda because of the different reactions.
