For a straight-up butterscotch chip cookie, you can use your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, and substitute butterscotch chips (or mix chocolate and butterscotch, if you like). bolletje uses the standard Toll House cookie recipe in this way, and suggests using all brown sugar if you really want to emphasize the butterscotch flavor.

pamd shares her favorite recipe for oatmeal butterscotch chip cookies:

3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups rolled oats
1 2/3 cups butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, beat the butter and both sugars together. Add the eggs and vanilla, and beat well. Stir together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and stir until blended. Stir in the oats and the butterscotch chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until the edges begin to brown.
