instructions Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
ingredients 2 cups all purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon table salt
instructions In a small bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and table salt. Set aside.
ingredients 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter 3/4 cup brown sugar 3/4 cup granulated sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla
instructions In a large mixing non-metallic bowl, with an electric beater, cream together the 2 sticks of butter, sugars and vanilla. If too stiff (you want the consistency of butter cream frosting), place bowl in microwave for 10-20 seconds.
ingredients 2 large eggs
instructions Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating for 10 seconds after each egg.
ingredients 1 bag (11 oz.) butterscotch chips
instructions Beat in flour, in two or three additions. Stir in butterscotch chips.
ingredients 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 1 handful pine nuts (about 1/2 cup) 1 tablespoon flakey sea salt (I like to use Maldon salt) 1 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
instructions Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter in a small non-stick skillet – add pine nuts and toast, stirring with wooden spoon, being careful not to burn – pine nuts burn easily! If you burn them, start over! Remove from heat when butter is brown and foamy and pine nuts are perfectly golden and let cool for a few minutes, and then stir in salt and pepper.
instructions Add to cookie dough, making sure to scrap all the brown butter goodness into bowl, and stir to incorporate.
instructions Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place scant tablespoonfuls of dough onto paper, spacing about 1 inch apart. Cookies will spread. Bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes or until cookies are golden brown. Remove and let cool on sheets for 3-4 minutes, remove cookies to racks and continue to cool until room temperature. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
