These are called Liberty Square Cookies but really they are just really good chocolate chip cookies.

My roommate Stephanie and I made these every Sunday in our Liberty Square apartment #38 in Provo. WARNING, this recipe makes the best dough ever so you may not get actual chocolate chip cookies. Chocolate Chip Cookies on a plate


We should have called these “Date Me” cookies because we would give them to any group of guys we thought were cute. The recipe makes 6 dozen so you can cover your man bases and give a dozen to 6 of your dating prospects. If you are married you can guarantee that your husband will have mad love for you…love handles that is.

There are cookies you make because you want a chewy chocolate chip cookie. There are some when you want a soft chocolate chip cookie. Then there are some cookies, like these, that you like because they are a little of everything. Great texture, taste, and makes enough to share.

Liberty Square Cookies

These are called Liberty Square Cookies but really they are just really good chocolate chip cookies.


  • 1 lb unsalted butter (4 sticks , softened)
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 Tablespoon vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 6 cups flour
  • 12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips (or you can do both bags chocolate chip and don't add the butterscotch chips)
  • 12 oz butterscotch chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Cream butter, brown sugar, sugar, vanilla, and eggs until creamy. Next add in salt, baking soda, and flour; mix well. Fold in the chips.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Do not overcook.
  4. I use parchment paper to make sure they don't stick. This recipe is very touchy. Follow it exactly. This is hard work for your mixer. I even had a hard time using a KitchedAid getting it all to fit. Probably would stick with a huge bowl and hand mixer. Makes 6 dozen.
