OK! I was wanting something sweet! (When I am NOT wanting something sweet?) So, I decided to make one of our favorite kinds of cookies! They are called Oatmeal Scotchies! Several years ago, I noticed the recipe on a bag of Nestle Butterscotch Morsels. Can you say YUMMY!
If you would like to have a new addiction, here is the recipe:
1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract or grated peel of 1 orange
3 c. quick or old fashioned oats, uncooked
1 (12 oz.) pkg. (2 c.) Nestle's Toll House butterscotch flavored morsels
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, set aside.
In large mixer bowl, beat butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract or orange peel until creamy. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in oats and Nestle's Toll House butterscotch flavored morsels. Drop by measuring tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 7 or 8 minutes for chewier cookies; 9-10 minutes for crisper cookies. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
