Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

Sharing is caring!

One of my favorite cookie recipes has to be these delicious butterscotch oatmeal cookies!  They are sweet little bites of heaven!  I had a dream last night I was diagnosed with diabetes after gaining weight.  Once Christmas is over I really need a sugar siesta!  But for now, sugar abounds because I am not about to ruin Christmas by swearing off of sugar before the holiday!  Have you been making Christmas treats yet?  Sustaining your sugar high?  I have been.

Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

 

 

Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookie Ingredients

 

1/2 cup butter, softened

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup applesauce

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

4 cup flour

2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 bag of butterscotch baking chips

2 cups rolled oats

 

 

 

 

Instructions for Making Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Prepare cookie sheet with cooking spray.

 

In a large bowl, mix softened butter and the rest of the wet ingredients together with a hand mixer.  Once well-mixed add the dry ingredients EXCEPT for the butterscotch baking chips and the rolled oats.  Mix well again.

Roll the cookie dough into one and a half inch balls and place them on the cookie sheet (I usually fit 12 to a cookie sheet).  Rolling the dough into balls instead of just dropping spoonfuls on the cookies sheet gives you more uniform-looking cookies.

Doesn't the applesauce make it healthy? ;) We have two birthdays this week to add to our sugar fest! Thanks for joining us again at Family Joy Blog Linkup Debra.

Of course the applesauce makes it healthy. Just like my diet Coke cancelled out the doughnut I had for breakfast yesterday!
