  • cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter softened [2 sticks]
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 10 oz package butterscotch baking chips
  • 2 cups roughly chopped pecan pieces
  • cup English toffee bits (plain or chocolate covered)


  • Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • Using an electric mixer, cream together the softened butter, light brown sugar, granulated sugar and vanilla extract. until fluffy and light beige in color. About 2 minutes.
  • Add the eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Stop and scrape the sides of the bowl periodically. After all of the flour has been added beat for 1 minute.
  • By hand, mix-in the butterscotch chips, pecan pieces and bits-o-brickle until evenly distributed in the dough.
  • Cover and chill for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  • To prepare: Preheat the oven to 350°F and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Use a 2 oz ice cream scoop to divide the dough. Place onto the cookie sheet at least 2-inches apart.
  • Bake in batches for 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden. [Keep the dough chilled between batches.]
  • Cool on the pan for 5 minutes then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.


  • While I most often use plain toffee bits, or bits-o-brickle, for these cookies, they're quite delicious using chocolate covered toffee bits, too. Either way, you can't go wrong.
  • You can make these cookies any size you like. Adjust the baking time as needed, for larger cookies increase the time and for smaller cookies, decrease the baking time.
