Sunbutter and Butterscotch Cookies

I enjoy treats that don't call for many ingredients in the recipe.  I also enjoy creating new recipes that bring joy to my family...and to my sweet tooth!  I'm actually thinking about taking the plunge into decreasing my family's sugar intake.  After this weekend at my son's birthday party, I would like to find ways to feed my family less sugar.  It's going to be a rough journey.  I know that it will be a big challenge ...and the kids have no idea about the horror that is about to happen!

Anyways, this week I made a few different goodies and I am excited to share them.  The other two baked yumminess involve Nutella, so if you are a fan of that delicious spread than check back here soon!

Ingredients for Butterscotch and Sunbutter Cookies:

  • 1 cup Sunbutter 
  • 1 cup Butterscotch morsels
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup sugar, brown or white sugar is fine

My hubby is allergic to peanuts and I usually make peanut butter cookies for others but this time, we didn't have any and I thought it would be nice to make him a little treat.  You could substitute peanut butter or even soy butter for this recipe, if you like.

Instructions to Make Butterscotch and Sunbutter Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  I like to line my baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix sugar, Sunbutter and egg together.  Then, add in butterscotch.
  3. Measure out about a tablespoon for each cookie onto baking sheet. 
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean after inserted into cookie. Be careful not to overcook.

Cookies are one of my favorite, I'll have to find ways to make them a little healthier once we go on our limited sugar challenge.  This will definitely be interesting!
