Another one on the list

Please excuse my cell phone photo. A friend of ours is borrowing our camera so I was forced to be resourceful and use my cell phone to take pictures tonight. But these cookies were just too good not to be posted. I came across this recipe on Loves to Eat a couple weeks ago and instantly knew I wanted to try them. You can check out her photo to see how good these cookies really look. I’m normally not really big on butterscotch flavored desserts, but I do love it in oatmeal scotchies. And these definitely didn’t disappoint. In fact I think I’m adding these to my list of favorite cookie recipes. They are perfectly chewy which is always a good cookie in my book.
Oatmeal Scotchies with Chocolate Chips
1 and 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. gr. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
3/4 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups quick or old fashioned oats
1 bag butterscotch chips (I used 1/2 bag)
1 bag chocolate chips semi-sweet (I used 1/2 bag)
Pre-heat oven to 375
Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a small bowl. Beat butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla in a large mixer bow. Gradually beat in flour mixture, Sire in oats and chips. Drop a rounded, full tbsp. onto an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake for 7 to 8 minutes for chewy cookies. Cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes. Remove and cool on wire racks. Serve with a cold glass of milk!
