Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

I pulled this recipe from a Family Circle magazine. The cookie recipe is from Cindy McCain...apparently there was a contest. I can't remember if these were the winner or not, but they could have been!

I was afraid that they were going to be really dry and crumbly, but they were not at all! They were moist, chewy and delicious! I ended up taking some to school because there were so many (not quite the 5 1/2 dozen the recipe says it will make) and everyone liked them (or so they said)!

I will definitely be making these again...especially when I'm craving something other than chocolate!

Cindy McCain's Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies


3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) unsalted butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed 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
3 cups rolled oats
1-2/3 cups butterscotch chips

1. Heat oven to 375F.
2. In a large bowl beat the butter or margarine, granulated sugar and brown sugar together.
3. Add the eggs and vanilla, beating well.
4. In a medium-size bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
5. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture; stir until blended.
6. Stir in oats and butterscotch chips.
7. Drop by tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. (I kept the dough in the freezer between baking.)
8. Bake at 375°F for 10 minutes, until the edges begin to brown.
9. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

These cookies would surely disappear around anyone we know. Oatmeal anything is a goner.
