Many of you probably love sweets, but can I just say, not very many people love sweets like my husband and I do. We will go to great lengths to satisfy our craving for something sugar coated. From time to time I will notice that my bags of chocolate chips in the pantry are slowly being depleted...when we were first married this was a mystery to me. However, now I know better. The mystery of the depleted mini chocolate chips? Ben! We just love all things sugary, honeyed, candied, and dipped in chocolate. If its a cookie, scone, cake, ice cream, pie, or brownie we will devour it more quickly than we ought....get the point? :)

So, as we prepared to go to the beach last weekend I whipped up some of these delicious cookies. Let me just tell you, you are gonna want to try these. They were incredible. The perfect combo of chewy and sweet. The recipe makes a ton of little cookies or a decent number of larger cookies, so you can have one or two at a time. Butterscotch is one of my favorite flavors. I always loved going to the doctor's office when I was little and searching through the candy bowl on the way out for a butterscotch dum dum sucker. And, my dad always had a bowl of cinnamon and butterscotch candies in his office...so the flavor brings back fond memories.
Alright enough of me rambling...here is how you make these babies!
3/4 cup butter, room temperature
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed 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 of salt
3 cups rolled oats
1 2/3 cup butterscotch chips
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
In a stand mixer beat butter and both sugars until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and mix untl combined. Add vanilla, beat well.
In a separate bowl stir together flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, stir until blended. Stir in oats and butterscotch chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls (for small cookies) or tablespoonfuls (for larger cookies) onto a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 10-11 minutes in the oven, until the edges turn golden brown.
This recipe takes a classic oatmeal cookie and steps it up a notch. I am planning to make some again soon to take to neighbors. Who doesn't love a plate of warm cookies? I hope you all enjoy these cookies as much we did!
