Peach Butterscotch Cookies
Peach Butterscotch Cookies are awesome. Peaches and butterscotch chips–what’s not to love about that combo? If you thought peaches with caramel bits were good, or peach cookies made with ice cream, or even cookies made with peaches, almonds and coconut, then I think you’ll enjoy these cookies as well. Honestly, peaches are good in just about any combination of flavors. Peach Butterscotch Cookies will certainly satisfy your sweet tooth, and then some.
I am finally posting my last peach recipe this year. 🙂 Every subsequent post will have pictures taken in a new kitchen and setting, since we moved to a rental home in Cedar Hill while we wait for our house to be completed….that was back in early August, so I’m like two months behind.
While I will miss my peach trees and not having the opportunity to make quite so many peach desserts in the future, that season in our life is past now. We’re moving to a location that’s much closer to our church and friends so we can get together more frequently and feel more involved and connected with our church family. They started framing our house yesterday so in a few months (January or February probably), we will be moving again. Hopefully, this time for good!
I was busy formatting the pictures for this post with my granddaughter at my side. She said she wanted to put on some grubby clothes and just dive into the bowl with the cookie dough–and then eat all of it up. 🙂 Sounds good to me! The cookie dough for this recipe is scrumptious and the cookies are wonderful too. They’re very sweet due to the butterscotch chips and the texture is lovely with a little crunch and lots of gooey deliciousness.
If you enjoy peaches, you’ll love these cookies. While I enjoy desserts with chocolate, it’s nice once in awhile to have one that’s chocolate-free. Butterscotch certainly does the trick. All I can say is you’ll have to hide these cookies. Once everyone tastes them, no one will be able to keep their hands out of them. 🙂
Peach Butterscotch Cookies are hard to pass up.
A stack of cookies with a cold glass of milk is a must!
Peaches and butterscotch are lovely together.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Place softened butter in a mixing bowl. Add eggs, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, salt and vanilla.
Cream with an electric mixer to combine.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add peaches and butterscotch chips.
Stir with a wooden spoon to combine.
Scoop dough with a cookie scoop and place on greased or sprayed cookie sheets.
Bake at 350 about 12-15 minutes or until done.
Take a tray of Peach Butterscotch Cookies to your office and they’ll go fast!
These are great to make for tailgating parties in the early fall.
