Recipe for Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

Today is my birthday!! I love birthdays, they are so fun! I don't understand why some people hate celebrating their birthdays. I love having a special day! I know getting older can be a downer for some, but I don't feel that way. I like getting older and wiser:) I am a whopping 27 years old now!!

Josh is taking me out for sushi tonight and tomorrow he is throwing me a dessert party with some friends. He is too good to me!! I am sure this will be the best birthday ever!!!

We are celebrating with cookies today! Josh informed me the other day that he has never had a butterscotch cookie. I was shocked! So of course I had to whip up a batch of Butterscotch Oatmeal cookies for him to try! I love butterscotch and oatmeal together.

This time I used quick oats, I NEVER use quick oats in my oatmeal cookies, but that is what Josh measured I decided to
go with it. I was very skeptical at first, until I took a bite. I loved these cookies! They were nice and thick and full of oatmeal butterscotchy goodness!! And Josh really enjoyed them! This won't be the last time he has a butterscotch cookie!

Butterscotch Oatmeal
  • 3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 package of butterscotch chips (we used Guittard)

1. Heat oven to 375°F.

2. Beat butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in large bowl until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.

3. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in oats and butterscotch chips; mix well. Drop by heaping teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.

4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 4 dozen cookies.

Happy Birthday to you!
My husband hates butterscotch, which is too bad, because I'd like to bake with it more.
Hey, I made your graham crackers the other day and posted them. Also just posted some Killer Nutella graham crackers--today is World Nutella Day!
Have a great day!

Happy Birthday! February is a good month...mine is on Saturday! :-) PLUS, my best friend is having her baby today; so you share a b-day with her little Luke. I love butterscotch cookies but don't often make them b/c my roomie doesn't like them so I'd be alone eating them. BAD!
