There is not much in the world of food that I love better than a cookie. Perfectly portable, portion sized, endless flavor combos and super quick and easy to make. These are the favorite of the house and never, ever last more than a day. In fact they rarely even make it to the cookie jar.
Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies
1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 6 Tbls. butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups quick cooking oats
1 bag (12 oz.) butterscotch chips

In a large bowl using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars together on medium speed until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Add oats and butterscotch chips; mix well.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
Cool 1 minute on cookies sheets; remove to wire rack to cool. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.

I love cooking with real food, knitting with good yarn, sleeping in (when the kids let me), staying up late to finish that last chapter, DIY projects, and most of all enjoying life.
