The Eat Food NOT Money Cookbook

Oatmeal scotchies

I have been baking cookies for Christmas all week and these, according to everyone that’s tasted them so far, are the top favorite!

What you’ll need:

1 1/4 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 c butter, softened
3/4 c sugar
3/4 c brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 c old fashioned oats
1 pkg butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt, mixing well. Set aside. Beat together butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla until creamy. Gradually mix flour mixture into butter mixture until well combined. Stir in oats and chips. Drop by teaspoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 7-8 minutes for chewy cookies, 9-10 minutes for crisp cookies. Makes about 4 dozen.

all purpose flour – $1.25
baking soda – $0.50
cinnamon – $1.85
salt (large) – $0.38
tub butter – $2.38
