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.

These are called Liberty Square Cookies but really they are just really good chocolate chip cookies.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 6 dozen


  • 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


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Cream butter, brown sugar, sugar, vanilla, and eggs until creamy. Next add in salt, baking soda, and flour; mix well. Fold in the chips.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Do not overcook.
  • 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.
