12 Days of Cookies! Day 6: Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

I remember being in either 7th or 8th grade and going to my friend Mary’s house and making these cookies. Who knew that there were butterscotch morsels?! Before that day I didn’t, and to think, the recipe is super easy to follow and right on the back of the bag! It always makes me wonder, because so much time has to be put into adding recipes to these packages that I think it’s important to try some of them out. Even my canned tomatoes have a recipe on them! Honestly, take a moment and look at the boxes/bags/cans your food comes in, I’m sure you’ll find something yummy to try. Now these cookies were a bit of a challenge to me because when they came out of the oven I realized that they may in fact be the flattest cookies I’ve ever made. I made have to do a bit tweaking the next time I make these and add ½ to 1 ½ cups of four to the mix, I will test it out, because too much and I’m worried they will become really dry.
