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.

About the Author
Linda (LRuthers)



     I'm convinced that there are many more bad recipes than there are bad cooks. The problem is that sometimes decent cooks use bad recipes and then believe that the poor results are their fault.

     When people print recipes in cookbooks, magazines, etc. or when they post them online, they seldom tell the pitfalls or the little tips needed to make the recipe turn out well. And, too, quite a few printed recipes contain typos!

     I search for recipes that are good. Dependable. I'm not a chef. I'm a mother and grandmother who's been cooking for >45 years.

     I believe that any recipe posted for the general public should be one that I can master. If not, there's something wrong with the recipe.

     I post my successes and my failures, and tell what I learned when following each new recipe. I learn more from my mistakes. I don't know what that says about me.

     The very best recipes are the ones that are inexpensive, delicious AND easy. And there are a lot of those.

     Sometimes, I spend a little more and work a little harder for a recipe that seems to be one that will make people really happy.

Thanks, Linda
