The “Everything” Cookie

by zesty on November 14, 2011 · 5 comments

Happy Monday!

Last night Zesty Junior approached me and asked if we could make a special dessert.  Of course I said sure buddy tell me what you are thinking.  Well Dad, remember those butterscotch chips I found in the pantry?  I was thinking we could make a cookie using those because nobody has ever done that before.  Sounds good, I said – let’s get at it.

Before getting right into the batter, I took a spin around the blogsphere for some interesting butterscotch chip cookie recipes.  I came up with a few but none that really blew my mind.  The I stopped over at The Pioneer Woman to see what she had in the cookie department.  Needless to say this was my last stop on the tour.  I stumbled onto her Monster Cookie and fell in love.  I altered it quite a bit from some of the add-ons as I didnt have them on hand and of course we had to use the main star ” butterscotch chips”  but other than that followed her recipe to a “T”.  As they were baking in the oven the whole gang was wondering when they would be ready.

The smell was amazing.  After about 11 minutes I removed them from the oven and let them rest for a minute and then moved them to a cooling rack.  Let’s be honest here….. they did not sit on the cooling rack for more than a minute.  We tossed some on a plate poured 4 glasses of milk and devoured the cookies.  Consensus in the room were 4 thumbs up!  I tested 4 cookies just to make sure they were all good..

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks (1/2 Pound) Butter (salted) Softened
  • 1/2 Cup White Sugar
  • 1-1/2 Cup Brown Sugar, Packed
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 Tbsp.Vanilla Extract
  • 1-1/2 Cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1/2 Tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1 Tsp. Baking Powder
  • 2 Tsp. Kosher Salt
  • 1-1/2 Cup Oats (either Quick Or Regular)
  • 1/2 Cup Smarties
  • 1/2 Cup Butterscotch chips
  • 3/4 Cups Chocolate Chips (milk Or Semi-sweet)
  • 2-1/4 Cups Rice Krispies

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cream butter with sugars until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla and beat.
  3. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and kosher salt. Add to mixing bowl and mix till combined.
  4. After that, add in remaining ingredients in whatever quantity you prefer. The chocolate butterscotch additions can be added to your liking.
  5. Add Rice Krispies at the very end, mixing until just combined. Do not overmix!
  6. Use a spoon to drop balls of dough onto a cookie sheet. Bake until golden brown, then allow to cool on a rack.

Zesty Tip: Don’t overcook this fellas.  One batch I left in a little longer and they crisp up on the bottom pretty quickly.  Unless you like a crunchy cookie – watch out  for these in the oven.  I would go 11 minutes tops.

Alright, well I am a bit behind schedule today.  I have a tonne of things to wrap up before I leave for California tomorrow.  I will see you on Wednesday from sunny Anaheim with another update.  Have a great start to the week and keep smiling.

Take care

Dear Zesty, These cookies look great but I have one question, why so much salt?

I don’t see any list of nutritional content for your recipies. I have to be very careful of what I feed my family because of health issues. Please comment.

Thank you

Jill

@Jill,
You can definitely alter the salt to your liking. I just find that that particular type of salt matches the chocolate flavor. Do remember this makes 36-48 cookies deoending on the size… so in reality that is not a tonne of salt. I hope this helps. If you have other questions by all means let me know.

These remind me very much of monster cookies – thinner but totally terrific :)
I am itching to try out a recipe – I’ve got tonnes of theme ideas like movie, valentines etc for the cookie :P

Mmm, monster cookies. I love how they have a little bit of everything in them – something for everyone! Might need to make a version to clean our some random items from my pantry.
