Place 1½ cubes of butter in a skillet. Melt butter on medium heat, until butter melts, begins to bubble, froths up, then slightly browns. Once done, remove skillet from heat.
Add browned butter and brown sugar to large mixer bowl. Beat together on medium speed. Once mixed, let mixture sit for a couple minutes, stirring occasionally to let mixture cool down slightly, before adding other ingredients.
Once cooled down a bit, add salt, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix well.
STIR in flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Once mixed, add butterscotch chips; stir well to combine. Set aside.
In a separate small bowl, mix brown sugar and granulated sugar for topping. Use a 1 Tablespoon sized scoop to scoop dough from bowl and roll dough between your clean hands to form a ball. (*Note: This is where I used a slightly larger scoop to make cookies larger. Process is still the same, though). Once dough is a ball, place it in brown sugar/granulated sugar topping. Roll dough around to cover completely with sugar topping.
Place dough balls onto parchment paper lined baking sheets. Keep dough balls about 2 inches apart, as they spread a bit while baking. Bake cookies in a 375 degree oven for 10 minutes.
Remove baking sheet from oven; let cookies cool for a minute, then remove cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
