Cookie of the Week

Cookie of the Week (9)

Not exactly what I had planned but good none the less. This week I made Butterscotchies. But... I got distracted and left out a key ingredient - 3 cups of oatmeal! So these cookies are predominately butter and sugar. Like I said, still good, just not what I had planned. (and not the prettiest of cookies)


1 1/4 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 sticks butter, softened
3/4 c white sugar
3/4 c packed brown sugar
2 eggs
grated peel of 1 orange
3 c old fashioned oats
2 c butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 375ยบ

Beat butter, both sugars, eggs and oatmeal and orange rind in a large bowl. Mix together the rest of the ingredients (except for the chips and oatmeal) in a separate bowl. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture until well mixed. Stir in the butterscotch chips and the oatmeal.

Drop spoonfulls on to a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake 7-8 minutes. They get dark but that's ok.
