I just always want to make oatmeal for cookies because it cuts down on the “just hot sugar and butter” aspect quite a lot and actually adds some other nutritional values.  And always pro more nutrition.

Ingredients

3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
bag of butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

In a large bowl beat the butter or margarine, white sugar and brown sugar together. Add the eggs and vanilla, beating well.

Stir together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and stir until blended. Stir in the oats and the butterscotch chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges begin to brown.
