I was looking through all the wonderful Oatmeal Butterscotch recipes here on 'Zaar and was surprised that there was not this basic recipe which DH was craving. Found this one on Hershey's Kitchens website. These came out just how I rememebered them, chewy, sweet and delicious. In my oven the cookies came out best when cooked the full 10 minutes. DH sugggests that these may also be good for you because of the oatmeal, I think otherwise, but they sure taste good. These cookies freeze well too!

Needed a couple more minutes since I made them kinda big. I used both 1/2 tsp vanilla and zest of a whole orange from my yard. Soooo great! Orange is my new secret ingredient! Snuck in some flax too.
