Anyway, these cookies. People love these. It's a spiced cookie that has chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and toffee pieces in it. They're soft, chewy, and have a great blend of flavors. While these aren't my personal favorites (because I'm not a big butterscotch fan), I know a lot of people who absolutely love them. I always make a huge batch of them over the holidays. Cookies are one of my favorite things to bake, so I'm looking forward to sharing a lot of cookie recipes with you guys in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

Print this recipe
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1/2 cup English toffee bits
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until fluffy. Add in the eggs one at a time until blended. Scrape down the bowl as needed. Add in the vanilla, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves and mix until combined. Add in flour and mix on low until incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, toffee bits, and walnuts (if using).
Form the dough into one-inch balls and place on an ungreased baking sheet two inches apart from each other. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool on the pan for one minute and then remove to a wire rack or a flat surface to cool.
