Double Peanut Butter Coconut Butterscotch Cookies

As you know, my dad and I are both fond of coconut and butterscotch.  Additionally, I have an addiction to peanut butter.  I decided to combine all of these infatuations and make a loaded cookie.  These cookies have PB2, which is basically peanut flour, in their base, and peanut butter chips, coconut flakes, and butterscotch chips.  They are simple to make, and can be in your hand, ready to eat, in less than an hour.

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

12 tbsp salted butter melted and cooled

1/2 cup dark brown sugar

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 egg

1 egg yolk

1 tbsp vanilla extract

2/3 cup peanut butter chips

2/3 cup butterscotch chips

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.  Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl with a fork.

With a wooden spoon mix the butter and sugars until combined in a separate larger bowl.  Add the egg, yolk, and vanilla.  Slowly add the dry ingredients.  Add in both types of chips and coconut.

Line baking sheets with parchment paper.  Roll dough into 1/3 cup mounds and place on baking sheets.  Bake for 12-13 minutes.  Don’t over bake!  Enjoy with a glass of milk.
