Butterscotch Chocolate Chunk Cookies
1 cup Unsalted butter, softened
1 cup Light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup Dark brown sugar, firm packed
3/4 ts Vanilla extract – (optional)
1/8 t Salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups Semisweet chocolate cut in coarse chunks
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Cream the butter with both sugars until very well blended. Mix in the vanilla and egg, then fold in the salt, flour and chocolate chunks. Form into small or large balls (walnut-sized or golf-ball-sized, as desired). Place on the baking sheets and press down slightly. Bake until done, about 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on racks.
(Makes about 2 dozen large or 4 dozen small).
