Recipe for Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

Today is my birthday!! I love birthdays, they are so fun! I don’t understand why some people hate celebrating their birthdays. I love having a special day! I know getting older can be a downer for some, but I don’t feel that way. I like getting older and wiser:) I am a whopping 27 years old now!!

Josh is taking me out for sushi tonight and tomorrow he is throwing me a dessert party with some friends. He is too good to me!! I am sure this will be the best birthday ever!!!

We are celebrating with cookies today! Josh informed me the other day that he has never had a butterscotch cookie. I was shocked! So of course I had to whip up a batch of Butterscotch Oatmeal cookies for him to try! I love butterscotch and oatmeal together.

This time I used quick oats, I NEVER use quick oats in my oatmeal cookies, but that is what Josh measured out…so I decided to go with it. I was very skeptical at first, until I took a bite. I loved these cookies! They were nice and thick and full of oatmeal butterscotchy goodness!! And Josh really enjoyed them! This won’t be the last time he has a butterscotch cookie!

  1. Happy Birthday! It’s sweet that you made these for your hubby on your bday :). Butterscotch oatmeal cookies–another recipe I haven’t tried!

  2. Happy Birthday! February is a good month…mine is on Saturday! 🙂 PLUS, my best friend is having her baby today; so you share a b-day with her little Luke. I love butterscotch cookies but don’t often make them b/c my roomie doesn’t like them so I’d be alone eating them. BAD!

  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARIA! May you have many many more.
    Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies sounds so delicious, perfect treat for a birthday girl.

  4. Happy happy birthday, Maria dear, happy days will come to you all year…

    I hope your dinner and party are terrific, and that your hubby spoils you rotten. Here’s to a great 27th year!
