  • Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C)
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 3-5 minutes.
  • Add the egg and the extracts and mix again.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, spices, salt and baking powder. Add to the mixer bowl and mix to combine.
  • Using a 1 ½ tablespoon scoop, drop cookies onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper. (I used silicone)
  • Flatten each cookie slightly then bake for about 11-13 minutes or until cookies are pretty much cooked.
  • Using a metal measuring spoon or something similar, press indents slightly into each cookie, working quickly. Drop butterscotch chips into each indent and place back in over for about 2 minutes, or until butterscotch chips are melted.
  • Remove from oven and, using same measuring spoon, swirl chips to smooth out then sprinkle with maple flakes. Let cool, then serve.
