The crunchy, buttery and crisp butterscotch cookies are not so difficult to make. One needs to take so much care though, while baking these. A minute extra would mean that the butterscotch is melting off and caramelizing which would destroy the taste of the cookies. My batch of cookies are also a bit over done (mostly a minute of extra baking) but we loved that crunchiness so much. I let it brown on purpose as I like the caramelized flavour. If you dont want your cookies to look like mine, take them off a bit early.
- Powdered butterscotch chips - 3 tbsp
- Colorful toffee bits - 1 tbsp
- Flour - ¾ cup
- Corn flour - 2 tbsp
- Butter (at room temp) - 1 cup
- Sugar powdered- ½ cup
- salt - a pinch
- Beat the butter and sugar in a vessel until it becomes a soft paste.
- Mix the dry ingredients of flour, salt, corn flour in a bowl.
- Mix the flour with the butter mix and knead slowly. Add butterscotch powder and toffee bits.
- The mixture would be falling apart and this should be correct consistency.
- Bring it close together to form a ball, warp it in cling film.
- Refrigerate for an hour so that the dough becomes workable.
- Roll/Press out a circle shape using your palms and if required cut to desired shapes.
