Butterscotch White Chocolate Chip Cookies with gfJules {Gluten-free}

Total Time


  • 3 cups gfJules all-purpose gluten-free flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter or non-dairy alternative like Earth Balance
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 8 oz. butterscotch chips* (verify gluten-free)
  • 4 oz. white chocolate or vanilla chunks or chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk gfJules all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of your mixer, cream together sugar, brown sugar and butter (or non-dairy alternative).
  4. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until fluffy.
  5. With the mixer on low, slowly add dry ingredients until just mixed.
  6. With a spatula, stir in butterscotch chips and white chocolate chips/chunks.
  7. Use a medium cookie scoop to scoop balls of dough onto parchment or silicon lined baking sheets. My dough balls weighed 1 1/8 oz. each. and I had 12 per cookie sheet.
  8. Bake at 350° for 10-11 minutes. Leave cookies on pan for 3-5 minutes, then move to cooling rack.
  9. If your cookies spread too much during baking, try the following:
  10. Chill dough for an hour before baking.
  11. Make sure to let your pan cool well between batches.
  12. Consider adding an additional 1/4 tsp xanthan gumto the recipe.


Recipe Notes

*I recommend Guittard brand for the butterscotch chips and white chips as they are made in a dedicated gluten-free factory. A chopped up Baker's white chocolate bar would work as well and tastes great!
*Avoid Nestle butterscotch chips as they contain gluten.
If you aren't using gfJules flour, or another flour that already has xanthan gum in it, you'll need to add 1 tsp xanthan gum to the recipe.
