Everyone loves an ooey gooey Magic 7-Layer Bar so I thought why don’t we take all of those ingredients and make the ultimate Magic Bar Cookie? These have the  perfect balance of salty and sweetness. The cookie has a soft, chewy center and buttery, crisp edges. 

The sweet caramel butterscotch chips paired with semi-sweet chocolate chips is the perfect combination. The pecans or walnuts add some hearty crunch and help to cut the sweetness.

How to make Magic 7-Layer Cookies:

  1. Start by creaming together the butter, brown sugar, and sugar for about 4 minutes, or until light and fluffy. Scrape the sides of the bowl often. Add eggs and  vanilla.
  2. Fold in flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. The cornstarch adds thickness without adding a cakey texture and it helps the cookies to stay fresher longer. 
  3. Fold in butterscotch chips, semi-sweet chocolate chips, shredded coconut flakes, and pecans or walnuts. My favorite brand of butterscotch chips is Guittard.
  4. Bake on a light colored baking sheet. If you want to make easy clean-up, use parchment paper sheets. Bake just until the edges turn a light golden color. Don’t overbake these cookies.

  1. Can any remaining dough be frozen and thawed/used at a later date? If so are there different instructions you suggest

  2. Hi Melissa,’
    Please look at comments for “MAGIC 7-LAYER BUTTERSCOTCH CHIP COOKIES”. You have some questions there which should likely be answered. -Thank you

  3. is the temperature really 385 degrees for the Magic 7 layer butterscotch cookies? that seems awfully high to me.

    1. 5 stars
      Hi Susan! Yes, it is correct. 🙂 Most cookie recipes can range anywhere from 350 degrees to 410 degrees. The traditional Nestle Toll House cookie recipe is 375 degrees and I found that 385 degrees was the perfect baking temperature for these cookies.

      Thank you so much, Jacqueline! We love to hear it. Thank you so much for trying my butterscotch 7-layer cookies.

  4. What do you do with sea salt? I don’t see it in the directions, but it’s last on the list of ingredients.

      Hi Janae! So it is an optional step if you want to add a little salty element to the sweet cookie. I suggest sprinkling on a little amount of Maldon’s sea salt flakes.
