Ingredients

    • 3 cups unbleached all purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup unsalted or salted butter (or margerine)
    • 3/4 cup half and half or light whipping cream
    • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt (if unsalted butter is used)
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 1 cup milk (for best results use whole milk)
    • 1 egg
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla
    • 1 cup butterscotch baking chips
  • Topping:
    • 1/3 cup butterscotch baking chips, fine chopped (use food processor)
    • 1 egg white, slightly beaten
    • Confectioner's (powdered) sugar (optional)

Instructions

Preheat oven to 425 F.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place flour and butter in a medium mixing bowl, combine with your fingers to a coarse meal consistency. Add sugar, baking powder and salt (if used) combine well. Stir in cream, vanilla and egg, blending well to form a soft dough.

Scoop mixture onto baking sheet. Brush tops with beaten egg white; sprinkle ground butterscotch chips over top. Bake until browned - 16-18 minutes. Dust with confectioner's sugar when cool.
