Coconut, Butterscotch & Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sometimes after a long day of work, I come home craving something sweet – a warm, chewy cookie with a tall glass of milk is just the thing that will curb my sweet tooth.  In particular, these coconut, butterscotch, and chocolate chip cookies are amazing and are sure to make you smile after a long day.  Not only are there semi-sweet chocolate chips in these cookies, but there’s my favorite, white chocolate chips as well.  White chocolate goes very nicely with coconut and butterscotch goes nicely with coconut and chocolate, so basically, all the flavors in these cookies go very nicely with each other.  Did I mention that besides pizza, my hubby also likes to bake cookies sometimes?  Well he does, and sometimes he surprises me with these treats.  Enjoy!

Do you have a sweet tooth?  If so, what do you tend to crave after a long day of work?


  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda and salt and set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until smooth.
  4. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until well blended.
  5. With a wooden spoon, add the dry ingredients and stir just until incorporated.
  6. Stir in the butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, and coconut.
  7. Drop the dough by heaping tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing the cookies 2″ apart.
  8. Bake the cookies, 1 sheet at a time, until lightly browned, about 10-13 minutes.

  15. yum! That three-chip combo just stole my heart ❤

  16. I love cookie recipes. This looks great and I like that it has butterscotch chips. You can’t find many recipes with them.

  17. Yes, I have a sweet tooth ALL the time 🙂 Especially after I eat something savory – I automatically want something sweet right afterwards.
    And these would definitely do the trick!!

  18. I love coconut and white chocolate. My husband on the other hand dislikes the texture. Strongly. But I am a cookie girl through and through. It’s my one big weakness. I would love to try these but I’ll have to sub out the coconut or I’ll be forced to eat them myself and that would not be a good thing. What would you recommend?

    • Do you and your hubby like nuts? You could always include some walnuts or even my favs, hazelnuts. Another option would be dried fruit. I love dried blueberries and they go really well with chocolate especially white chocolate. Those would be my recommendations. You can really substitute anything you like!

    I love cookies packed with lots of add-ins! Butterscotch chips are the best!
