Oatmeal Butterscotch Chip Cookies

Recipe by Lindas Kitch
READY IN: 10mins




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In 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.
  • Add the beaten eggs; mix well; set aside.
  • In 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.
  • Add the oats and the butterscotch chips all at one time; mix well.
  • Grease (with vegetable shortening) a large 16-inch by 12-inch baking sheet.
  • Shape dough into golf ball-size balls, spacing 2 inches apart. Place 12 dough balls on the cookie sheet.
  • Bake 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.
