Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

Today I spent the day in the kitchen, mixing and measuring, stirring and sifting, while dancing and singing Christmas songs. It was really therapeutic. I made two pans of Lemon Squares, Christmas sugar cookie cutouts, banana bread with walnuts, cranberry orange nut bread and a new cookie that I had never tried before, oatmeal butterscotch cookies.

These are so very good.  I am shocked that I had never heard of them before.

First things first, cream the following in a large bowl with an electric mixer:

  • 3/4 cups of unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cups brown sugar

Add 2 eggs and 1 tsp. vanilla. Add one egg at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition.

In another bowl whisk to combine:

  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and combine.

Add 3 cups old-fashioned oats and 1 cup butterscotch chips.

Drop cookies onto parchment lined cookie sheets and bake at 375F for 10-12 minutes.

Ethan says they taste great with a cup of half eggnog and half milk.
