Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies Recipe
I don't know anyone who doesn't like oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, they are certainly one of my favorites. But sometimes I do get a little bored making the same recipes with the same results time after time.
I was craving some cookies today and I was out of chocolate chips, but I did find butterscotch chips in the pantry. Boy, am I glad I used the butterscotch because these are some of the best cookies I've ever made.
Moist and fragrant, these cookies are perfect with a cold glass of milk. My grandchildren loved them as an afterschool snack today.
This recipe makes about three dozens cookies. Keep them in an airtight container and they'll stay fresh for a few days.
