Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

These delicious oatmeal cookies are chewy in the middle from melted butterscotch chips with enough crispiness on the edges to crunch a little when you bite. The recipe is from Laura Vitale's YouTube channel. It's included below.

Direction: How to make butterscotch oatmeal cookies

Step 1. Preheat oven to 375 deg F.

Step 2. In a large bowl, combine butter and sugar (brown and regular). Cream together with a whisk.

Step 3. Then add eggs and vanilla extract. Continue to mix until well-combined.

Step 4. Then add flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Mix until batter is smooth.

Step 5. Finally, add butterscotch chips and oats. Batter should become doughy, so mix them in a folding motion.

Step 6. Scoop a spoonful of cookie dough ball onto a baking pan lined with wax paper (or use a non-stick baking pan like Laura used in her video). Be sure to leave a couple of inches in between each ball to allow for expansion when baking.

Step 7. Bake for 9-11 minutes until the edges are light and golden brown.

Step 8. Let cool in a rack for 5-10 minutes before serving.
