What are your favorite recipes using white chocolate or butterscotch chips? Cookie recipe suggestions would be awesome as I'm trying to use these up while baking Christmas cookies.

Yeah, fine. Rub it in that you have these. Don't mind us.

My favorite recipe for the butterscotch is a toss up between biscotti with pecans, butterscotch chips, and half the liquid replaced with butterscotch schnapps. Or, peanut butter cookies with butterscotch chips and a healthy splash of the schnapps.

For white chocolate, I never get past the old standby of white chocolate macadamia. Sometimes with coconut and a splash of coconut rum.

Yes, I do like boozing up my cookies.

Haha! Sorry! My husband ordered them from vegan essentials (or food fight?).

I've been looking for a vegan white chocolate macadamia nut cookie recipe but haven't found one yet. Do you have a specific one you use?

I just alter a chocolate chip recipe. Usually the one in Isa's cookie book.

I love Isa's pumpkin oatmeal cookies (on the blog or in VWAV) with butterscotch chips. One of my all-time favourite cookie combos.

Okay, forgive me for being new to baking. I get a little nervous messing with recipes. I do love Isa's chocolate chip cookies though in VCTOYCJ. I usually reduce the oil to half a cup though or my dough is too runny. To make white chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies using that recipe as a base just sub the white chocolate chips for the regular and add a 1/2 cup macadamia nuts? Should I chop them up first a bit? I couldn't get unsalted so should I leave the salt out in the recipe? Would adding the nuts make me need the full amount of oil for any reason?

I would love to try the pumpkin cookies with the butterscotch but my husband HATES pumpkin and since he bought them I should make something he likes. Ill keep it in mind for a different time though!

Thank you both for your suggestions!

I got mine on amazon, but I imagine if you live somewhere with Kosher markets, they would exist there, too. Honestly, they weren't amazing, they were the really waxy crappy kind of white chocolate with almost no cocoa butter. But better than nothing, I guess.

As far as butterscotch, can you ever go wrong with oatmeal scotchies? And my grandma used to make an apple cake with butterscotch chip topping.

Cookies, basic drop cookies, are usually really hard to fork up. You can swap flavors with abandon and do things like sub 1/2 oil for apple sauce, and 1/4 - 1/3 of the liquid for liqueur, like Amaretto or hazelnut. For mix-in, stopp adding when the dough can't hold any more! You can roll them in fine,y chopped nuts or coconut.

My husband ordered them from vegan essentials I believe. They aren't great but definitely fulfill that craving. He has a crazy sweet tooth and it's the one thing holding him back from being 100% vegan. I'm trying to keep the house stocked with yummy homemade vegan treats in hopes of easing the transition.

Thanks for the tips! I didn't really cook or bake until becoming vegan last year. Getting comfortable in the kitchen has been a slow but very fun process!

I've never oatmeal scotchies. Are they basically and oatmeal raisin cookie but butterscotch chips instead of raisins?
