There’s no cookie more iconic than chocolate chip! And I’ve had an awesome variety of big, small, crispy, chewy and more that have all been fantastic. This recipe though is a little twist on your favorite. With a chewy consistency and the addition of butterscotch chips, they’re a great take on the American classic. If you can pull yourself away from your go-to family recipe, give these a try this holiday season – or any time of year for that matter…
