Oatmeal Scotchies are very easy. The recipe is straight off the back of the morsels package. They are simply oatmeal cookies with butterscotch morsels in them. The only change I make in this recipe is the same one I make in all my recipes using brown sugar. I prefer the granulated brown sugar because it is easier to use.
Verdict: Yum! This one's a keeper!
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup (2 stocks) margarine or butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups quick or old fashioned oats, uncooked
1 12 ounce package (2 cups) butterscotch flavored morsels
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; set aside. In a large mixer bowl, beat margarine, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract until creamy. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in oats and butterscotch morsels. Drop by measuring tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 7 to 8 minutes for chewy cookies or 9 to 10 minutes for crisp cookies. Let stand on cookie sheets 2 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets; cool completely on wire racks. Store tightly covered.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
