Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

My husband and I came home from church
on Sunday and we thought it would be nice
to have a batch of cookies around the house
this week for a treat.
MMM, how about some Chocolate Chunk Cookies?
or Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Sounds great, we thought until we came to
the unfortunate discovery that the bag
we thought was chocolate chips was butterscotch chips.
AHHH Man! what do you make with butterscotch chips?
Well, apparently there are thousands of butterscotch
cookie recipes. Here is the one we selected.

Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups rolled oats
1 2/3 cups butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
In a large bowl beat the butter or margarine,
white sugar and brown sugar together.
Add the eggs and vanilla, beating well.
Stir together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
Gradually add the flour mixture to the
butter mixture and stir until blended.
Stir in the oats and the butterscotch chips.

(The Batter)

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges begin to brown.

This recipe was very easy and the cookies turned out GREAT!!

Great cookies! I haven't thought of putting both Oats and Butterscotch together. Yum! How did you like the new cookie sheet?
