When I picked up the butterscoth chips at the grocery sunday I did not have a plan for them. I remember asking little man what he wanted to take for snack day today and the first time he replied Fruit Snacks, not one iota in healthy food there. But I was none the less planning on picking up fruit snacks and cheese sticks during my break at work. However, I never had a chance to fit in a break before 10PM, thought I could stop at super walmart on my way home and then forgot about it.
So this morning from my sleep stupor, hubby got kids ready for school, I asked again what little man wanted and he replied cookies. I have made m & m bar cookies for him in the past. However, I have no m&m’s, looked at the back of the chips I bought and saw this recipe:
Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies
3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups quick-cooking or regular rolled oats, uncooked
1-3/4 cups (11-oz. pkg.) HERSHEY’S Butterscotch Chips
1. Heat oven to 375°F.
2. Beat butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in large bowl until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.
3. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in oats and butterscotch chips; mix well. Drop by heaping teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.
4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 4 dozen cookies.

My oven must be off because I had to bake them for about 12 min.
The batter tasted delicious also.
Here they are:
Off to deliver them before snack time, will pick up some reg. milk and chocolate mild to go with. Hope the kiddos like them, I will not tell little man they have oatmeal becuase anything that sounds healthy he snubs without even trying it.
Happy Wednesday to you!
