Everything Cookies!

Earlier in the summer I blogged about some cookies I made for our family Auction. I'm actually quite surprised at myself because these cookies were incredible, and sold for $50, and I haven't made them since!

But yesterday I changed that. I even altered them a bit - I added butterscotch chips and cinnamon. They were delicious! So here's the recipe as I made it yesterday. I'm loving these cookies!

Everything Cookies
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter (I used crunchy)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Stir in the peanut butter, vanilla and egg until well blended. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; stir into the batter just until moistened. Mix in the oats, chocolate chips, and butterscotch chips until evenly distributed. Drop by tablespoonfuls on to lightly greased cookie sheets.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges start to brown. Cool on cookie sheets for about 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

I found that the total of 1 1/2 cups of chips was quite a lot! So it was hard to form the dough into cookies, due to the ratio of chips and oats to actual dough. But it was totally worth it! Every bite of cookie was full of crunchy oats and delicious chocolate and butterscotch chips. Yum!
