Family Favorite

I have been making these for years and we all love them, so easy and so delicious. I try to always have the ingredients on hand as you never know when the mood will strike for one of the cookies !

I have revised this recipe by adding the juice of an orange as well as vanilla extract. I also add white chocolate chips and toasted, chopped pecans, and it makes for that perfect sweet and salty harmony that everyone craves. Anytime I make these, they disappear fast and have requests to make them again and again!

- Christina Pollock from Pa


These cookies are the most marvelous and incredibly magnificent cookies I ever did see!!!! ^_^

- Adam Lantry from Binghamton, NY


These are the best cookies. There is no other oatmeal/butterscotch that can beat them. They are a family favorite!!! Keep more than one copy of the recipe on hand!! You'll need it, because the others will disappear just like the cookies will!!
