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!
