Recipe of the Month

Anyone who knows me well knows how much I love to bake. Cookies of any kind are my favorite, but I also enjoy baking bread. I’ll go on record to say that I am the absolute worst when it comes to making a pie crust, though. Somehow I even manage to ruin the store-bought ones (*rolls eyes at self*).

For this month’s Recipe of the Month, I’m offering up my daughter’s favorite cookie, “Oatmeal Butterscotch”. My daughter has a slew of food allergies – including chocolate – so discovering this recipe has been a game-changer. I believe I got it off the package of butterscotch chips, and it’s definitely one you’ll want to try.

Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

½ tsp cinnamon

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

¾ cup granulated sugar

¾ cup packed brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla OR grated peel of 1 orange

3 cups old fashioned oats

1 package (11 ounce) butterscotch flavored morsels

· Preheat oven to 375

· In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon

· In a large bowl, beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs & vanilla

· Beat in flour mixture gradually

· Stir in oats and morsels

· Drop onto ungreased baking sheets by rounded tablespoon

· Bake for 7-8 minutes for chewy cookies or 9-10 minutes for crispy cookies.

· Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely

Be sure to eat these within a day or so, because they will tend to dry out if kept longer than that. This is the perfect excuse to devour these quickly ;-)

Let me know what you think!
