Spiced Apple Cinnamon Butterscotch Chip Cookies

We had to go to a wedding over the weekend. This is the first time we have left our daughter with a friend for more than a half hour (aaahh, the joy of having no family nearby). One of our good friends just loves her to pieces and volunteered to entertain her for a few hours.
As part of her payment, I decided to make cookies for them. When we were at the store I bought butterscotch chips, but didn't just want to make oatmeal butterscotch cookies---so normal! So I googled (is that a word now, because the editor is underlining it like it's not...) some recipes and found this one. And, I just love the blog I found it on, too!

Here's the recipe...I didn't change a thing!
1/3 c shortening/butter combo (half butter/ half shortening) 
1/2 c applesauce
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1-1/4 c flour
1/3 c sugar
2 Tbl brown sugar
1/2 tsp soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 c butterscotch chips
  • Preheat oven to 350*
  • Cream sugars and butter. Add eggs and vanilla. Stir in applesauce.
  •  Combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. 
  • Stir about 1/3 of dry mixture into wet. Repeat until all combined. Stir in chips.
  • Grease baking sheets. Spoon on batter.
  • Bake 12-15 minutes until firm and golden.


  1. I thought googled was a word too...these sound good...definitely not the ordinary.

  2. yeah! I finally got it to work to follow your blog!

  3. Welcome, friend. I found your new blog, and I'm so excited to read about canning...I might try something if I get brave enough.
