  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, rack in the middle position.
  2. Melt the butter in a large microwave-safe bowl for about 90 seconds on high.
  3. Add the sugars and let it cool for a bit.
  4. Then add beaten eggs, baking powder, baking soda, salt and vanilla extract.
  5. Mix in the flour and then the butterscotch chips.
  6. Add the rolled oats and mix in thoroughly.
  7. Let the dough rest, uncovered for 10 minutes, allowing the butter to solidify.
  8. You can either drop by rounded tablespoons, or roll in to a ball with your hands, pushing them down a bit to prevent rolling, onto a greased cookie sheet, 12 to a sheet.
  9. Bake at 350 for 12 to 15 minutes.
  10. Cool on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes, then remove them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  11. These freeze well if you roll them in foil and put them in a freezer bag.
