Tempt My Tummy with Oatmeal Scotchies

Imagination Movers GiveawayFor anyone with small children or grandchildren: I am hosting a giveaway for a CD/DVD combo pack of the Imagination Movers (Disney Junior show). Grace loves it. Go to HERE to ENTER.

My daughter, Grace, has been home sick for the past 4 days. She has been miserable each time that fever creeps back up.  Because we have been home bound, I thought baking cookies may cheer her up.  With no appetite, I was willing to try anything to get Grace to eat.  My immediate thought was chocolate chip cookies… but OH NO! I was out of chocolate chips!  I could not believe I let that happen.   Then I saw the bag of butterscotch chips. YUMMO! I knew I could make something special with them.  I found a recipe for oatmeal scotchies.  The recipe was easy and I had all the ingredients.  It was a winner for Grace, hubby, and myself.  I think this has become a new favorite.

  • 1 1/4 cup s all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar

  1. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a small bowl.
  2. Beat butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract in a large mixer bowl. Gradually add flour mixture.
  3. Stir in oats and butterscotch morsels.
  4. Spoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
  5. Bake 7-8 minutes for chewy cookies; 9-10 minutes for crisp cookies.

These are so good…. I think I will quickly finish writing this post and go grab another cookie.  I am so glad we still have a few left!  🙂

It is a catastrophic event in our house too when we run out of chocolate chips. Hope your daughter feels better soon. I think your cookies are very inventive.
