I was wandering down the baking aisle one day looking for inspiration and I found butterscotch chips. What the what?! I didn’t even know that was a thing! So, I looked on the back of the bag for recipe suggestions and found this cookie recipe. Sold! I love it when it’s that easy.
Nestle calls these “Oatmeal Scotchies,” but that’s too cutesy for even me. Let’s just call them what they are: Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies.
I know some of you may be thinking butterscotch may not be your thing. Well, my dad who really only likes chocolate chip cookies, and variations thereof, absolutely devoured these. I have included the picture to prove it. I’m sure he’ll be thrilled that I’ve forced him into cyberspace and onto my blog. LOL, dads. 🙂
