Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

Confession: I have a minor addiction to butterscotch chips. While you can't go wrong with a few straight from the bag, when baked in a cookie they are perfection. Try these oatmeal butterscotch cookies tonight. They are easy to make - and even easier to eat!

Warning: It's impossible to eat just one.

Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup quick oats
6 oz butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Stir in eggs and vanilla. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt and then combine with the other ingredients. After blending thoroughly, add in oats and butterscotch chips.

Drop tablespoonfuls on an ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes, rotating the sheets halfway through.

What's your favorite way to eat butterscotch chips?
