Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

Emma does love her sweets.....
 We made a big batch of these cookies yesterday. They are a long standing family favorite (I first made them when I was just 8 years old! ).The whole house smells wonderful as they bake, and they taste so yummy with a glass of milk.  I thought I would share the recipe in case someone has not yet tried them:

Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies
3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2  teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups old fashioned rolled or quick cooking oats
1 1/2 cups butterscotch baking chips

Preheat oven to 375. Cream butter together with both sugars, eggs, and vanilla. Seperately mix the flour, spices, baking soda, and salt together. Add gradually to butter mixture, mixing well. Add oats and butterscotch chips next. Mix well. Drop by spoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake about 8 minutes, until light golden brown. Cool slightly, then remove to wire racks to finish cooling. About 4 dozen cookies. Hope that you love them as much as we do!
