Tuesday Talk: Oatmeal Scotchies Cookie Swap

I'm excited to share a new cookie recipe with you today.  I tested it out a few weeks ago and my family loved them.  I love butterscotch chips and they always remind me of my mom.  I don't cook with them often and I'm not sure why that is.  I made some changes to this recipe from Averie Cooks to come up with the following recipe for Oatmeal Scotchies.

1 egg
1/2 c room temp butter
1/2 c brown sugar
1/4 c granulated sugar
1 T vanilla
1 1/2 c quick cook oats
3/4 c flour
2 t cinnamon
3/4 t nutmeg
1/2 t baking soda
pinch of salt
1 heaping cup of butterscotch chips (or any other chips)

Combine egg, butter, sugar, vanilla and cream together.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add in the dry ingredients.
Save the chips for last.
Tip: Keep a small handful of chips out of the mix and then put them into the cookie dough balls before your refrigerate them.  This will help your cookies to be prettier when they bake and the chips to stand out.

Refrigerate dough for at least 3 hours.
I did mine overnight.  It's easiest if you scoop your dough out into balls prior to refrigerating them.

Preheat oven to 350 and bake 9-10 minutes.
You may want to flatten your dough balls out a bit prior to baking and then let them cool on the warm cookie sheet.  They should look a little glossy when you take them out of the oven.  Be sure not to over bake them or they will be crunchy cookies instead of chewy.
