Butterscotch Chip Pan Cookies

When I was a kid, my mom used to make chocolate chip pan cookies.  I loved them.  It was such a different treat from the standard cookie.....sort of a cross between a brownie and least that's what I thought at the time.  I actually have not had a pan cookie since I was a kid...strange...must not be an "in" thing anymore :)  Anyway, other then the fact that I over baked these just a tad bit...they were wonderful....they really brought back great memories of my childhood.  It was the perfect little treat!

Butterscotch Chip Pan Cookies
Adapted from Nestle®
Printable Recipe 
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) of unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
2 cups (1 12oz bag) butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Grease a 10 x 15-inch jelly roll pan.

Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl.  In a large mixer bowl (I used my stand mixer), beat the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Gradually beat in flour mixture.  Stir in morsels.  Spread into prepared pan.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool in pan on wire rack.  Cut into bars....and enjoy!!

Oh yummy! And pan cookies, like brownies, can be whipped up in a couple minutes. I may need to make these this weekend for the houseful of company! :-)
