Oatmeal Butterscotch Drop Cookies

Oatmeal Butterscotch Drop Cookies
Oatmeal Butterscotch Drop Cookies are perfect to fill up the cookie jar. These cookies are great warm from the oven and are slightly chewy, and full of butterscotch chips. They are easy to make, and call for ingredients that are most likely already on your pantry shelf or in your refrigerator: butter, white and brown sugars, flour, oatmeal, vanilla, eggs, flour, baking soda, and butterscotch chips. You can usually make these anytime without going to the grocery store.
While these aren’t fancy and aren’t the type to include on a special cookie tray; they are simply old fashioned oatmeal cookies and you’ll agree that they are yummy.
