Butterscotch Cookies

Today seems to be "Cookies from Rita" day because I got this recipe from her last year as well! They are not too fancy, but they are certainly quick, easy, delicious. My dad and Chuck LOVE these so I will be making them every year from here on out!

Butterscotch Cookies
from Rita
Makes about 4 dozen
1 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package butterscotch chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In large bowl of electric mixer, cream together butter and sugars. Add in eggs and vanilla, beat until well combined.
Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl. Gradually add to butter mixture, mix until just combined.
Stir in butterscotch chips, drop by tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes or until edges are just golden brown.
