Oatmeal Scotchie Cookies

I love butterscotch – almost more than chocolate.  You might remember your grandmother making these traditional cookies.  Of course I know that butterscotch chips are artificially flavored, and you might think that would deter me from enjoying them.   The problem is, these cookies are more than the sum of their parts ~ they are “portable memories”.  They transport me to grandma’s house and I’m 11 years old waiting for them to cool enough to eat.  When you’re over 50 years old, transporting back to 11 is “a good thing”!

This recipe makes 4 dozen cookies.
In a mixer bowl, cream:
1 cup Butter, room temp.
1 cup Brown Sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup Sugar
Add to creamed mixture:
2 Eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
Add to above:
1-1/4 cups AP Flour
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Salt
Stir in:
3 cups Old-Fashioned Quaker Oats
1 (11 ounce) package Nestle Toll House Butterscotch-flavored morsels
Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes or more.  Roll the chilled dough into 1″ balls and place on parchment lined or lightly greased cookie sheet.  Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes.
