Chewy Chocolate Chip Butterscotch Cookies

3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 cup sugar

1 cup butter, at room temperature

2 eggs

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 cup butterscotch morsels

1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Combine brown sugar, sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla in a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or large mixing bowl and mix on medium speed until well blended.

Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl and stir to combine. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture and continue mixing until all ingredients are incorporated. Add chocolate chips, butterscotch morsels and nuts then stir to combine.

Using a tablespoon, drop heaping spoonfuls of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees (350 if using a dark colored pan) for 10-12 minutes or until bottom edges start to brown.
