I make Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies every year around Christmas. Everyone loves them. They are easy to make. So why should we only have them at Christmas? Oatmeal is good for you right? A lot of people have asked my how I make them. It's basically an altered oatmeal raisin recipe. It's very easy. Just make sure you use butter, not margarine don't over bake.
Jennifer's Amazing Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies
1-1/4 cups (2-1/2 sticks) butter, softened (not margarine)
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups oatmeal (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
1 Bag of butterscotch chips (2 Cups)
Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, beat margarine and sugars until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, and salt; mix well. Add oats; mix well. Add butterscotch chips; mix well.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. I really like my stoneware cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 9 minutes. Remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.
