This is my variation on oatmeal scotchies.
- 1 1⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 3⁄4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
- 3⁄4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3⁄4 cup walnut pieces
- 3 cups quick oats
- 1 2⁄3 cups butterscotch chips (11 ounce package)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Grease a 10 inch by 15 inch by 1 inch jelly roll pan or line it with parchment (I line mine with parchment because my old pan is in bad shape).
- Measure and stir together flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a small bowl.
- Cream butter with electric mixer until creamy, then add brown sugar, white sugar, eggs and vanilla extract and beat until very light and creamy.
- Blend in flour mixture. If using electric mixer, be careful not to overbeat.
- Stir in nuts, then oatmeal, and finally butterscotch chips. Stir just enough to mix together.
- Spread dough in pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until light brown. Cool in pan, then cut into bars.
These were a good cookie bar. I was tired of regular oatmeal scotchie cookies, and wanted to try something a tad different. I actually had all the ingredients which rarely ever happens. I cut the recipe down and only made a 1/2 batch for just my husband, toddler son and I (if my 6 week old had teeth, I'm sure she would have liked to try them!) and they came out perfectly. I must note that they did not keep well, after 1 day they were sort of stale, even though I was storing them cut up, in an airtight tupperware container. However, I continued to eat them anyway, beggars can't be choosers when you want something sweet. Thanks for posting the recipe, I would definitely make this one again.
