Sunflower Butterscotch Cookies (Kansas)

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Kansas? Sunflowers, of course! As the Kansas state flower this made a perfect inspiration for my cookie recipe. The sunflower seeds add a fun nuttiness and it pairs perfectly with the butterscotch chips. The recipe makes over 4 dozen cookies so you’ll have more than enough for a holiday cookie swap or gifting….or eating.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or baking mats. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter, sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy (couple minutes). Add the eggs and vanilla and mix to combine.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together Bob's Red Mill flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix to combine. Stir in oats, butterscotch chips and sunflower kernels.
  4. Using a cookie scoop, drop dough onto prepared cookies sheets, two inches apart. Top with a couple extra sunflower kernels and butterscotch chips. Bake for 8-11, or until lightly browned around the edges.
  5. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.

One thought on “Sunflower Butterscotch Cookies (Kansas)

  1. CES

    Easy recipe with a lovely, chewy texture. The sunflower seeds do add a pleasant nuttiness and slight crunch. If you’re a fan of butterscotch chips overall, you’ll enjoy these. I hadn’t used them in anything before, and found them a touch too sweet. I’m wondering if replacing them with standard chocolate chips would be good.
