In the Kitchen ~ Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies ~ 5/14/15



This recipe came from a cookbook called "America's Favorites:  Bake Sale". 


Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter or margarine
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups quick-cooking or regular rolled oats, uncooked
2 cups (12 oz package) butterscotch chips

Heat oven to 375F.

Beat butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in a large bowl until well blended.

Add eggs and vanilla; blend thoroughly.

Stir together flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.  Gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended.

Stir in oats and butterscotch chips; mix well.

Drop by teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet.  Cool completely.


 
I made these cookies to take to a church meeting.  I put them beside the coffee pot and they were a hit!  I got so many complements from the coffee-drinking men.  They loved them!

  7. Oh yummy! I love adding butterscotch chips to my chocolate chip cookies. I know I will love this and the oatmeal I'm sure gives them a chewiness that I love! Thanks for sharing with SYC. Pinned.
