  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, corn starch, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. Place butter and dark brown sugar in the bowl of an electric stand mixer. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Turn off the mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula. Add the egg and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until combined.
  4. With the mixer on low, slowly add the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Stir in the butterscotch chips.
  5. Using a spoon or cookie scoop, form tablespoon size balls of cookie dough. Roll balls in brown sugar. Place balls on prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake cookies for 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly browned around the edges. Do not over bake. Cool on the pan for 2 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire cooling rack and cool completely. Store in an air-tight container.
