Oatmeal Scotchies

Bar cookie recipe #3 for today, this is another one that I’ve had for so long that I can’t remember where it originally came from.

Courtney ate one and said “tastes like Christmas”

me “Christmas?  does that mean they’re good?”

Courtney “of course!  Christmas is always good!”


3/4 cup butter, softened

2 eggs, slightly beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup flour (I used 1 1/2 today, maybe it’s the heat?)

1 teaspoon cinnamon (Christmas maybe?)

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups oats

1/2 cup butterscotch chips (I used 1 whole cup)

Preheat oven to 350.  Cream butter, eggs and vanilla until smooth.  Add remaining ingredients except chips and mix well (here’s where you’ll be able to tell if you need more flour).  Stir in chips by hand.  Spread batter evenly in a greased 9 x 13″ pan.  Bake 20 – 25 minutes or until very lightly browned.
