Crispy Butterscotch Cookies

Oatmeal Scotchies were my Dad's favorite cookie. My Grandma would make them for him about once every other month or so and he would savor every bite. They quickly became one of my top cookie requests as well. When my Grandma passed away I was craving those cookies in a bad way. I searched and tore apart the kitchen and every recipe box and cook book looking for that recipe. My aunt told me to check the back of the butterscotch chip bag....der! I felt like a moron! Needless to say my Grandma's love made them taste better than each and every batch I have made following that same recipe. Isn't that strange how that is? ;)

Well yesterday I was craving some Oatmeal Scotchies, but had all my daycare kiddos in toe and was out of oatmeal. So after some toying around with the recipe on the back of the bag, I came up with this, and it is a keeper in my book!
