Good morning, fellow foodies! At our home, we are just getting in some last minute errands in so that we are ready for school to start. We have had some doctors appointments and a dentist appointment. We are also remembering to have fun as we prepare so we have had a sleepover and some get togethers. I always feel like supermom when I let the kids have a sleepover because I always go the extra distance to make sure the kids have a fun time. It starts with a super clean of the house, lots of food, and entertainment. Now that the kids are older, the entertainment part has lessened because they make their own good times.
We spent yesterday with cousins, and the laughs were nonstop. I love to watch all 6 of the kids (my kids + cousins) interacting. I try to make a memory so that I can remember the moment. As I get older, I’m really aware of how important it is to make each moment count. One thing I won’t forget is how fast a batch of homemade cookies can disappear around our brood.
I made this recipe for my family and they loved them. They also inhaled them! I only had 3 left at the end of the day!
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups quick cook oats
3/4 cup unsalted butter room temperature
3 large eggs beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup dark chocolate morsels (I used 63 percent cacao)
2/3 cup butterscotch morsels
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Line baking pans with non-stick silicone baking mats (Silpat) or parchment paper.
3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and oats. Mix on low until combined.
4. Add butter, eggs, and vanilla. Mix on low until combined.
5. Stir in chocolate and butterscotch morsels.
6. Place approximately 2 tablespoons of mixture on baking mat. Repeat and allow 2 inches of space between each addition.
7. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool. Serve and enjoy!
