Scotchilla Cookies

     Well, I don't know what is wrong with me. I wanted cookies again today. I tried feebly to resist, but broke down and made some. I had half a bag each of butterscotch chips and vanilla chips from previous cookie making experiences  (see here and here), so I just combined them and made a new twist on a basic cookie...I call it "The Scotchilla"--just to sound dramatic. If I could only change the font to Chiller or something!
     Anyway, enough of me being weird for now. These were amazing! Plus, the oatmeal and flax seed makes them healthy...or at least healthier, right?
     I put some on a cookie sheet in the freezer. I will add them to a freezer bag when they are frozen, so I can make them another time when I have a craving.

3/4 c butter, softened
3/4 c sugar
3/4 c packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 Tbl milled flax seed
3 Tbl water
1 tsp vanilla (homemade)
1-1/4 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3 c Old Fashioned Oats
half bag butterscotch chips
half bag vanilla chips
  • Heat oven to 375*
  • Beat butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Add eggs, flax, and water. Beat well.
  • Combine flour, soda, cinnamon, and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture. Beat until well blended.
  • Stir in oats and chips.
Drop on cookie ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden.

  7. Woo hoo! What a great delicious looking cookie! I'm new here and so glad to follow to see what is cooking and baking next. Great recipe, love that butterscotch!

  8. I love your new name!! I've never heard of vanilla chips! I'll have to look for those. They aren't the same as white chocolate are they? I do use butterscotch a lot and always have a bag of those around. Thanks!!

  9. Debbi--
    I got the vanilla chips at Meijer (they are Meijer brand). I use them interchangeably with white chocolate chips. They usually don't make store brand white chocolate when you can. They don't taste the same though. I probably prefer the white chocolate (who wouldn't)even though the vanilla is fabulous, but only buy them for special occasions.
    It's nice to have you. I hope you enjoy the site!
