Oatmeal Scotchies


Oatmeal Scotchies
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup softened butter
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp water - this really makes all the difference
3/4 cup + 2 tbsp rolled oats (NOT instant)
6 oz (half bag) butterscotch chipe
1 tsp vanilla extract.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a small bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, or in your stand mixer, combine butter, egg, sugar, vanilla and water. Beat
on high speed until fluffy - about 5 minutes.
Gradually add in flour mixture, starting and ending with flour. With a wooden spoon, stir in
oats and butterscotch chips.
Place 1 tbsp balls of cookie dough on to a baking sheet lined with parchment and gently
press down cookies with your fingers.
Bake for 12 minutes. Remove from heat, and place on a wire rack to cool.
