1/1 Photo of Oatmeal Butterscotch Chip Cookies
Linda's Kitch's Note:
These cookies are a favorite! They're one of those crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, type of cookie, and I think you'll love how they turn out! The recipe came from our community cookbook.

Units: US | Metric
- 1 cup vegetable shortening
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed down
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 1 3/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups old fashioned oats, uncooked
- 1 (6 ounce) package butterscotch chips (1 cup)
- 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- 2In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the ingredients in the order listed. Start by creaming the shortening with the sugars, then add the vanilla; mix well.
- 3Add the beaten eggs; mix well; set aside.
- 4In a separate mixing bowl, thoroughly combine the flour, soda, and salt. Add the flour mixture, all at once, to the shortening-sugar mixture; mix well.
- 5Add the oats and the butterscotch chips all at one time; mix well.
- 6Grease (with vegetable shortening) a large 16-inch by 12-inch baking sheet.
- 7Shape dough into golf ball-size balls, spacing 2 inches apart. Place 12 dough balls on the cookie sheet.
- 8Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. In my oven, the cookies are generally done baking in 11 minutes. Allow cookies to sit on the baking sheet 1 minute before removing them to a wire rack to cool completely.
