3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 pinch nutmeg
3/4 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla
1/2 teaspoon butterscotch extract
1 cup butterscotch chips
1/3 cup butterscotch chips, finely chopped
1 egg white, whisked
Confectioners’ sugar (optional)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line top sheet of doubled up baking sheets with parchment paper or line 8 tuna tins with muffin liners and spray inner sides with non-stick cooking spray. In a food processor, place the flour and butter and pulse to break up butter. Add sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg or cloves and pulse to combine.
Turn out dough into a large bowl. Make a well in the center and stir in cream, vanilla, butterscotch extract and egg. Stir to make a soft dough. Fold in butterscotch chips. Scoop onto baking sheet or into prepared tins. Brush tops with egg white and add ground butterscotch chips. Bake until browned about 16 to 18 minutes. Dust with confectioner’s sugar when cool.
