Cookie 11 – Apple Butterscotch Cookies

My little brother is deploying to Afghanistan, so I’m re-starting the 52 Cookies Project! Here’s my new recipe for apple butterscotch cookies! I started with a super basic cookie dough recipe and added in finely diced honeycrisp apples (my husband’s favorites) and some butterscotch chips. It makes about 3 dozen cookies. As always, to get those beautiful, perfectly round cookie dough balls I use this delightful cookie scoop.
