Today I thought that I invented a recipe, which I called Apple Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies. Apparently this is not a new concept. A Google search yields plenty of recipes. At any rate, they are tasty and chewy and a nice change of pace.
Here is how I did it:
2 sticks butter at room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
6 packets apple cinnamon flavor instant oatmeal (approx. 3 cups)
1 package (11 oz) butterscotch chips
Drop by the spoonful onto baking sheets, and bake at 375 degrees F for 8-10 minutes; yields 3-4 dozen.
