Butterscotch Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

1 c. plus 2 T. Crisco Butter Shortening
1 c. granulated sugar
1 c. firmly packed brown sugar
3 eggs, slightly beaten
2 drops Butterscotch Flavor LorAnn Essence Oil, optional
1 t. vanilla extract
2 c. AP flour
1 T. ground cinnamon
1 t. salt
¼ t. baking soda
3 c. oats , quick or old fashioned
1 ½ c. pecans
11 oz. pkg. butterscotch chips
8 oz. pkg. Bit O’Brickle chips

 Whisk together flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda and set aside.

 Cream shortening and sugars in the bowl of a stand mixer or large bowl. Add eggs, butterscotch oil, and vanilla and mix well. Gradually add flour, salt and baking soda mixture. Add pecans and chips and mix just until combined.

Drop by heaping tablespoon, three inches apart, onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 11-13 minutes until light brown around the edges. Cool 2 minutes on the cookie sheet and then place on rack to continue cooling.

 For chewier cookies, store overnight in a sealed container with a fresh slice of bread. 

     These REALLY are good! Butterscotch and toffee chips with pecans in a cinnamon oatmeal cookie.
