Big Dipper Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies
My post is doing double duty today…first for my monthly recipe exchange with my sweet friend, Danielle, of Hugs & Cookies XOXO, and second, for a magnificent Valentine’s Celebration hosted by Anna, of Crunchy Creamy Sweet. I’ve had Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies on the brain since the holidays.
They were featured at our neighborhood cookie exchange. That particular baker apologized as she didn’t use her favorite Guittard Butterscotch Chips, so she felt they were subpar. Well, I beg to disagree…as I don’t even like butterscotch chips and I ate ALL of her cookies. Then, I hunted down the proper chips (thank goodness for Amazon Prime) so I could make my own.
Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies for Valentine’s Day
To make these chewy oatmeal cookies extra festive since Valentine’s Day is approaching, I dipped them in melted semi-sweet chocolate and decorated them with the cutest holiday sprinkles. Besides the torture of waiting till the chocolate hardened so I could shovel one of these babies in my mouth, these cookies were easy as pie to make. The male family members aren’t as fond of butterscotch as Katie and I are, so I brought the bulk of these to Bill’s co-workers.
As per usual, they were thrilled with some homemade treats. So if you’re a fan of butterscotch chips, these are darn tasty. If not, just substitute some semi-sweet chocolate chips. The oatmeal cookie base is a winner!
