Butterscotch Chip Oatmeal Cookies

After dinner last night we were looking for something sweet so I looked online for recipes that I had everything for and came up with this oatmeal cookie. I didn't have chocolate chips so I decided to try it with butterscotch chips and see how it went...

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Mix in the quick oats and butterscotch chips. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

These turned out even better than I could have expected! They were chewy and sweet, and even a little salty! The recipe makes 3 1/2 dozen, so expect to share!
