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!
