High Altitude Perfection
I have baked these closer to sea level in the past and loved them. When I moved to a higher elevation I had zero success until I tried this: increase flour to 1 1/2 cups, at a tsp of water with the flour and decrease both sugars to somewhere between 2/3 cups and 3/4 cups. I think I like them even better than before!
flat at higher elevations
I have loved this recipe for a long time. However, we now live in a higher elevation (4700 ft.) and I see no directions on how to adjust this recipe for higher elevations. Just following the recipe the way it is written here results in very flat, thin cookies that fall apart as I take them off the cookie sheets.
Not as flat as the regular oatmeal scotchies. However with both recipes I am a bit heavy handed with the oatmeal and never over mix. Will continue to enjoy this recipe with my family.
Substitute with peanutbutter morsels
I have substituted the butterscotch with peanut butter morsels and my husbands work requests them often. Everyone's wives are always requesting the recipe.
I MADE THESE AND SENT THEM TO MY HUSBAND'S AND SON'S UNITS IN AFGANISTAN. THE SOLDIERS LOVED THEM SO MUCH THEY KEEP ASKING ME TO SEND MORE. THEY EVEN SHARE THEM WITH THE LOCAL CHILDREN. THESE COOKIES HOLD UP VERY WELL IN SHIPPING. THE GUYS SAY THEY ARE THE PERFECT REMINDER OF HOME IN THEIR POCKET. I PACKAGE THEM IN ZIPLOCK BAGS OF 6 COOKIES TO FIT IN UNIFORM POCKETS. THE PERFECT SNACK FOR LONG DAYS AND NIGHTS, THESE COOKIES DO NOT MELT OR GET MESSY SO THE SOLDIERS LOVE TO PACK THEM IN POCKETS ON PATROL. THEY SAY THE CHILDREN LOVE THEM TOO AND THEY ARE GOOD FOR THEM SO THEY FEEL LIKE THEY ARE DOING SOMETHING HEALTHY FOR THE CHILDREN WHEN THEY GIVE THEM OUT.
