oatmeal butterscotch cookies

"these are the best cookies that you have ever made"-sean

disclaimer: i am not a huge fan of butterscotch so these are in fact not my most favorite cookies, but everyone else who has tried them loved them, so i figured it would be worth sharing!

 recipe adapted from the bag of hershey's butterscotch chips bag.

oatmeal butterscotch cookies 

3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light 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
1-3/4 cups butterscotch chips

1. preheat oven to 375.

2. beat butter, granulated and brown sugar in large bowl until well blended. add eggs and vanilla; beat well. combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. stir in oats and butterscotch chips; mix well.

3. roll approximately 1 inch balls between hands and place on cookie sheet. i usually fit 20 cookies on a sheet. bake for approximately 12 minutes, rotating cookie sheets after the first 5 minutes and then after each 3 to ensure even cookies. cool slightly on cookie sheets and then move to wire rack. cool completely. 

yields 4 to 5 dozen cookies, depending on cookie size.

i hope you enjoy these cookies! i didn't get a chance to take any pictures of them because they didn't last long... note to self: take pictures of food before offering it to the bearded wonder.

just a thought.
