One of our families favorite cookies. I often bake these to take to different events and am always asked for the recipe since they are such a different cookie from the standard cookie.

Made these to take to work along with some other goodies, and they were the first ones gone. Wonderful recipe! A "must have" from now on when I bake.
I absolutely love these. They are my favorite cookie, there is just something about the flavor of butterscotch & oatmeal together. Wonderful.
These cookies have been a favorite in my family for years! We almost always make them as bar cookies by spreading them in a 9x13-inch pan. These cookies are unique and delicious!
