1 1/2 Cups Flour
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon
1 Cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 Cup sugar
3/4 Cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 Teaspoon vanilla or grated peel of 1 orange
3 Cups quick or old fashioned oats
1 12 oz pkg. butterscotch morsels
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In small bowl combine flour, soda, salt and cinnamon: set aside. In large mixing bowl, beat butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract or orange peel until creamy. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in oats and butterscotch morsels. Drop by tablespoons onto un-greased cookie sheets. Bake 7 to 8 minutes for chewier cookies. 9 to 10 minutes for crispier cookies. Makes 4 dozen.
These are self trimming cookies that are moist and chewy. We make dozens and freeze them before the holidays. They can then be taken out of the freezer as needed. Fresh homemade cookies are minutes away! This recipe came from a high school classmate, Sherry!
