My son wanted to make a batch of cookies and we had butterscotch chips to use up so I went in search of a recipe. I found this one at Allrecipesthat looked perfect. I halved the recipe because I didn’t need such a huge batch of cookies sitting around. My son and I had fun making these tasty treats and they were a big hit with the whole family. They were especially delicious dipped in ice cold milk.Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies: Adapted recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net Original recipe by Allrecipes
