Caramel Butterscotch Cookies


With a strong craving for butterscotch cookies and a desire to try something new, I set my sight on making a new version.

This time of year everyone is all about cookies and certainly making something out of the ordinary is a nice change.

Caramel Butterscotch Cookies

I took one of my favorite recipes and gave it a little twist. These are the most amazing caramel butterscotch cookies ever. They are soft and chewy with burst of flavor.

I remember the first time I made these my daughter was just about 3. It was so cute watching her standing on a chair trying to peek into the bowl of my stand mixer as it twirled around.

Her eyes lit up like a Christmas tree as I pulled out a mason jar filled with homemade No Fail Caramel Sauce and poured it into the cookie mixture.

The anticipation is enough to knock you out as the aroma comes wafting through the house, but these cookies are worth it.

We love these and I am sure you will too!

  1. Is the dough normally a little more runny than typical drop cookie dough due to the caramel sauce (which is AMAZING)? Only asking because that is how mine turned out… still held the shape of the scooper, just looked more loose than what I'm uses to seeing.

  2. I tried to make these today. The only thing I did different was used the jarred caramel sauce. the cookies all ran together and didn't bake right and it seemed really greasy..

  3. 5 stars
    I started making these a few years ago and they are insane. I love them so much I could eat them all but I do try to save some for the rest of the family.
