Oatmeal Scotchies in a Pan


If ever there was a cookie that screamed for milk, it is this wonderfully delicious butterscotch oatmeal cookie.  I'll wager we drank close to a quart of milk as we enjoyed every last morsel of this easy bar cookie.


Ole Sweetie-Pi loved this cookie so much he was eating them the next day for breakfast (and I confess so did I).  After all, it does have oatmeal in them as a main ingredient, so how bad can it really be? 

Oatmeal Scotchies in a Pan
(found on:  http://allrecipes.com/recipe/oatmeal-scotchies-in-a-pan/)

Preheat oven to 350*F.  Lightly grease a 9" x 13" baking pan.
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
2 cups butterscotch chips, divided

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt; whisk together.  Add the rolled oats and 1 1/2 cups of butterscotch chips and stir to blend.

In a large bowl, mash the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth and creamy.  Beat in the eggs to make a creamy mixture. 

Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter-sugar mixture, beating well to combine.

Press the dough into the prepared baking dish.  Sprinkle the top with the remaining 1/2 cup of butterscotch chips.

Put pan  in preheated oven and bake about 30 to 35 minutes or until the top is a golden brown.  Allow to cool before cutting into bars and serving.

Cookies are very sweet and rich. Cut into small squares, approximately 24.
