Liberty Square 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 cookies. Liberty Square Cookies - chocolate chip and butterscotch cookies that helped me catch my husband.

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.

Liberty Square 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.

Speak Your Mind



  1. This is so sad but I actually remember those cookies and they really are yummy! Great, look what you have started. Now I am craving them and am going to have to go make them, eat 20 of them until I am so stuffed and then ask myself why I did that. These cookies are worth it though!

  2. I know this sounds all psycho, but people have told me I should never use salted butter in cookies. Do I really have to buy unsalted butter just for baking? Have you ever found a difference?

    • The whole thing about unsalted butter is so that you can control the salt level. If you use salted butter you should cut back the amount of salt in the recipe. The only thing I really notice the difference is when making frosting. Definitely want unsalted there.

  3. oh man Mark is going to LOVe these. I might just make them tonight while he is at school… He will come home to a little SURPRISE treat!

  4. CHRISTY! I love that I made it on the first post! It’s only right since I still make these cookies WAY TOO much! Plus I freeze a bag everytime I make them so I can always have a cookie when I need one! It’s a dangerous habit! But I’m so excited about your blog!

  5. Those look so good right now. You have no idea how bad I want that cookie dough! Fun new blog!

  6. This is such a good idea! I have a friend and she does one of these with like 5 or so of her friends. I think it is such a good way to share food ideas. I too love everything food. When we go on a vacation it is probably what I look forward to the most!!! How sad! You are cute to do this!!

  7. I’m making these right now and I can’t wait to try them. I’ve been thinking about them since I saw the post!!!!

  8. What a fun blog! These cookies look absolutely amazing! Sadly, I just got myself off the couch (to the computer) as I was eating a handful of buterscotch chips and choc. chips! I should’ve read this post FIRST!

  10. I’ve been eyeing the photo of these cookies in your header for months now and finally made them last week. They were GREAT and my kids loved them. They’re the first cookie they asked me to make more of once they were gone. (Honestly, they were gone pretty quickly.) Thanks for sharing it!

  11. Just stumbled upon this recipe-I lived at Liberty Square for a year when I was at BYU:) Too funny! The cookies look great!

  12.
