Scottish Oatmeal Cookies...well, I just eat the dough! :)


This recipe does make yummy cookies, but I think it's best enjoyed as dough!

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs (if you don't usually eat cookie dough because of samonilla, place eggs in boiling water for 10 seconds to kill bacteria, and then you should be fine!)
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups scottish oats, uncooked (wow, I hope you all knew that they were supposed to be uncooked...I'm just copying the recipe as written!)
2 cups butterscotch or chocolate chips (optional- it's great plain, too!)

If you must bake these, preheat your oven to 350. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; set aside. In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla until creamy. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in oats and butterscotch chips. Drop dough on ungreased sheets. Bake 7-8 minutes for chewier cookies, 9-10 for crispier.

Yield: 4 dozen.
