You'll definitely delight everyone when you serve these Buttery Butterscotch Cut-Out cookies.
- 1 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Butterscotch Flavored Morsels
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/4 cups butter (we recommend LAND O LAKES® Butter), softened and divided
- 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup 2% milk, divided
- 3 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
- 2 cups powdered sugar
PREHEAT oven to 375° F.
MELT morsels in small saucepan over low heat for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until smooth. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
COMBINE melted morsels, flour, 1 cup butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg, half the milk and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract in large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed, scraping the bowl often, until well mixed, 1 to 2 minutes. Divide dough in half and cover each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for about 1 hour or until firm.
ROLL out dough on lightly floured surface, one half at a time, to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutters and place 1-inch apart on baking sheets.
BAKE 5 to 8 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
MIX powdered sugar, remaining butter, milk and vanilla extract in small mixing bowl until fluffy, scraping the bowl often, about 2 minutes. When cookies are cool, spread on frosting.

BUTTERY BUTTERSCOTCH CUT-OUTS
I WAS SO PLEASED TO FIND A DIFFERENT CUT-OUT COOKIE RECIPE OTHER THAN SUGAR COOKIES. MY BOYS HAVE ROLLED OUT DOUGH AND CUT OUT COOKIES FOR YEARS WITH ME, BUT IT WAS ALWAYS SUGAR COOKIES OVER AND OVER AGAIN AND AGAIN. THE NESTLES BUTTERSCOTCH MORSELS GAVE THIS RECIPE A RICH AND DELICIOUS FLAVOR TO THE BAKER. THE DOUGH WAS A VERY GOOD CONSISTENCY TO ROLL OUT AND THE COOKIES WERE NOT DRIED OUT. A GREAT RECIPE TO USE ALL YEAR LONG--COOKIE CUTTERS CAME IN HANDY FOR THAT!!
