Christmas Cookie Recipe #1!

For the month of December, I'll be posting a new Christmas cookie recipe each week leading up to the week of Christmas Day. I have to warn you though, I'm posting some of my favorites so they may or may not have anything to do with Christmas. Lol.

The first one is one of my favorite cookies. It's the oatmeal scotchie. Yum...I could eat one just thinking about them...maybe I'll have to make some today.

The recipe can be found on the back of a bag of Toll House butterscotch chips, but for ease of posting, I got this one from here: http://www.verybestbaking.com/recipes/18478/Oatmeal-Scotchies/detail.aspx The picture also belongs to them. I'm only borrowing it to show you how ultra-yummy these cookies look!

Here's the recipe:


-1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
-1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
-3/4 cup granulated sugar
-3/4 cup packed brown sugar
-2 large eggs
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract or grated peel of 1 orange
-3 cups quick or old-fashioned oats
-1 2/3 cups (11-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Butterscotch Flavored Morsels


1. PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

2. COMBINE flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in oats and morsels. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

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

4. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

5. PAN COOKIE VARIATION: Grease 15 x 10-inch jelly-roll pan. Prepare dough as above. Spread into prepared pan. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until light brown. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Makes 4 dozen bars.
