I purchased some Butterscotch chips the other day and wondered what I could do with them. My husband loves Oatmeal cookies, and I found a recipe for Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies on the Nestle website. While putting the recipe together I pondered what would it taste like if I added Craisins?
I did, and may I tell you it was a terrific decision! The sweet/tang of the Craisins takes these cookies over the TOP! Try it, you wont be sorry!
We served in a dessert dish with Vanilla Ice Cream! YUM!
1¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp each ground cinnamon and salt
1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened
2/3 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups quick or old-fashioned oats
1 pkg Butterscotch Morsels
1 cup Craisins
PREHEAT oven to 375 °F
COMBINE flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract in large bowl until smooth.
Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in oats, morsels and Craisins.

BAKE for 7 to 8 minutes for chewy cookies or 9 to 10 minutes for crisp cookies.
