Hi Everyone and welcome to Ten Gables,
My freezer was empty of cookies and I like to have a nice batch or two frozen for unexpected tea parties and to take to church when we have a Senior dinner. So I found a recipe for Oatmeal Scotchies that sounded pretty good. They were good! Yes, I sampled a few before freezing them.Here is the recipe:
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
3 cups quick oats, uncooked
1 pkg. butterscotch morsels
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, soda, salt and cinnamon in a bowl and set aside.
In a large mixer bowl, beat butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla until creamy. Gradually add dry ingredients. Stir in oats and butterscotch morsels. Drop by Tablespoonfuls onto un-greased cookie sheet and bake 7-8 minutes for chewy cookies and 9-10 minutes for crisper cookies. Makes 4 dozen.
