I saw butterscotch chips on sale at the grocery store the other day, and bought them. I hadn't used these in years. I wanted to make cookies to use my new cookie scoop, that I got with one of the gift cards that I got for Christmas. If you are a Foodie, what do you get for Christmas? That's right more Foodie Stuff. I'm in heaven!
I got more cupcake wrappers, sprinkles, cupcake sleds, baking mat, stainless steel measuring cups and spoons, and a cookie scoop. My old cookie scoop broke. I'm in heaven!
Now back to the cookies. I knew that I had the butterscotch chips, so I added semi sweet chocolate chips, too. Usually when I make chocolate chip cookies I add a little oatmeal. This time I added about 1 cup, which changed the texture too much. Next time, I might only add 1/2 c oatmeal. I just wanted to make the cookies a little healthier. I was taking some of these cookies to my friend whose Father passed away last week, and she has two little kids. My Husband loved them anyway.
