Oatmeal Raisin Butterscotch Cookies (MMMM!)

This is such a special treat! You're going to thank me for sharing this recipe!!

When we spent time in Florida 2 winters ago, my dear friend Becky told us she had recently had the 'BEST COOKIE I'VE EVER EATEN'....

It was made by a waitress, Dawn, who works at a local restaurant...

It's just a couple of blocks away from the RV park where we have stayed. 

So of course, I had to get the recipe from Dawn.  And being the sweetie that she is, made up bags of these cookies for the bunch of us that frequent
the restaurant.  

Gotta love her! 

You really gotta try this luscious cookie.  And don't forget to add it to your holiday gift giving list too. 

The butterscotch is perfect with the crunch of the oatmeal and sweetness of the raisins.  I love that it's a nice thick cookie too. 

I'm guessing it could very well become a favorite with your family also! 


1 c. butter, softened

1 c. packed brown sugar
(I use 3/4 c.)
3/4 c. white sugar 
(I use 1/2 c.)
2 eggs
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract 
2 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
3 c. dry oatmeal (quick or old fashioned)
1 c. raisins
1 c. butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 350*. In large bowl, combine butter and sugars until creamy.  Add eggs and vanilla; mix well.  In medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; add to creamed mixture; mix until well blended.  Add oats; stir well by hand.  Add raisins and butterscotch chips, mixing until blended.  Drop by rounded Tablespoonsful onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake for about 10 - 11 minutes or until lightly browned.  Remove to cooling rack.  

Yield: 3-1/2 to 4 dozen
