  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl or electric mixer, blend butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until creamy and smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add this dry mixture to the butter/sugar mixture and blend well.
  • Mix in the oats. Stir in the butterscotch chips.
  • Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place evenly on a lightly greased cookie sheet (non-stick cooking spray works best).
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browning on the edges of the cookies. Place on cooling rack.
  • If you are going to freeze some of the cookies, wait until they are completely cooled, then place them in an airtight container or freezer grade, sealed plastic bag.
  • This recipe yields approximately 6 dozen cookies.


Reader's tip: "I add 2 tsp corn starch to keep them soft – I do that to all my cookies."
