Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

I've done a lot of baking lately. I'm not sure why except that my kids and husband love it when I do and who am I kidding? I love it too! 

Over this past weekend we were in need  of a sweet treat so I decided to haul out my Oatmeal cookie recipe. This recipe is from a childhood family friend and my mom used to make them all the time! 

Oh, they are good! Get out your baking pans!


The basic recipe is simple.

Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

Cream together:
2 cups of brown sugar
1 cup of shortening {regular or butter flavored}

Then mix in:
2 Eggs
2 teaspoons of vanilla
3 cups of oats

Add in dry ingredients:
2 cups of flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt 

Then mix in your butterscotch chips




If you don't have the chips here's another great alternative: The original recipe didn't call for the chips, you simple rolled the balls of dough in sugar then bake. This is super yummy too!





Roll balls of dough together and place on a greased pan. Bake at 375 for about 10 minutes or until slightly browned. 




They are really good with milk!






And my testers approved!
