Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by Sweet Diva MJ

Another recipe from what I call my from-here-and-there-and-everywhere collection. I Don't know where I got it....I know we liked them a lot because it has a blue star sticker (my system of remembering which of my tons of recipes I have made) on it and the blue stars were pretty - so I would have used them on the recipes that we really liked! :)

These were not too bad, but kind of bland - until we spiced the 'roll-in' sugar with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves (like for snickerdoodles). That added a nice kick to them. Definitely would make these again!
