Oatmeal-Butterscotch Cookies

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips
  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars. Blend in eggs and vanilla until mixture is smooth.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Stir into butter mixture, then mix in the oats and butterscotch chips.
  4. Drop rounded tablespoonfuls (large balls) of cookie down onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving about 2 inches between each cookie to allow for spread.
  5. Bake for 10-11 minutes, until the edges begin to brown.
  6. Let cookies cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

Oatmeal is one of my favourites in cookies. (Chocolate is still my top favourite one though) These look yummy :)
