I remember from early in my childhood my mother's delicious butterscotch oatmeal cookies. She would only rarely make them, but when she made them you knew. The smell of sweet butterscotch would drift down the hallway and find me or creep up to my room and draw me down from upstairs. I would always take a cookie as soon as I could even if they were not completely cooled. I loved the warm, soft chewiness of the freshly baked cookies, the sweet melted butterscotch chips and oats with a hint of cinnamon. To this day they remain one of my favorite sweets. If you want to try them for yourself you can follow this recipe.
