Since January is National Oatmeal Month, I had to make these butterscotch oatmeal cookies.   You will not be able to stop eating these soft, chewy cookies.  They really hit the spot for adults as well as children on a cold January day.

1 1/2 sticks of butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups of either regular or instant oats, uncooked
1 cup butterscotch chips
Beat butter,  both sugars, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl.   Add flour, soda, cinnamon, salt, oats, and butterscotch chips and mix well.  Drop by heaping teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.   Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until brown.  Makes about 4 dozen cookies.  Enjoy!

  1. OMG…I made a double batch of these tonight after work…..THEY ARE AMAZING!!! The house smelled yummy and all I can say…..I may have to hide these at work tomorrow….LOL

  2. These are a lot like my family’s favorite cookie, Judy. I just made some, in fact, and we’ve already eaten them up! Unfortunately, I can’t stop eating them—-cookies are my favorite sweet—-so I make them mostly when my kids are here to make sure I don’t eat too many! 🙂
