Simple Butterscotch Cookies Recipe (1) ~ Color Your Recipes

Okay, I think I am back…the reason that I say “think” it is because after a few weeks of being really busy between family and work, and now I have a deadline for a grant application…this is when I feel like giving up blogging…sometimes it is so hard to hold everything together. In the meantime I am sharing these oatmeal butterscotch cookies with you…

These cookies are awesome and so simple to make them…I pretty much followed the recipe from here, just cut down the sugar since the butterscotch chips are pretty sweet. These cookies have a thin caramelized coat and the oat gives a slightly chewy texture…so good!

I hope you have a chance to try them…


½ cup unsalted butter or 1 stick, softened at room temperature
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 large egg, room temperature
1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon salt
