Last night I was bored at home with nothing to do, so I did what I always do when I’m bored at home with nothing to do. I baked cookies. Yummy oatmeal butterscotch cookies.
These cookies are sure to please just about everyone. Usually sweets without chocolate don’t go over too well with my chocolate-obsessed family. However, everyone raved over these cookies. My dad ate 4 within about 3 minutes.
1/2 cup (1 stick or 4 ounces) butter, softened
2/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup butterscotch chips
1. Preheat oven to 350°F
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together. Stir this into the butter/sugar mixture. Stir in the oats, and butterscotch chips
4. Place rounded tablespoons on a cookie sheet
5. Bake for 12 minutes or until lightly browned
These cookies are perfect if you’re looking for something a little different than your basic chocolate chip or basic oatmeal cookie. Hmmm…now I’m bored again. More baking? Possibly…
