Oatmeal-Apple Butterscotch Cookies
1 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup softened unsalted butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups rolled oats
2 large peeled, cored, and diced tart apples
1 10-ounce package butterscotch chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper
or grease lightly. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt in a small
bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, cream the butter with the sugars until
light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time and mix well until fully
incorporated. Mix in the vanilla and then the flour mixture until fully
incorporated. Stir in the oats, apples, and chips and mix well. Drop by rounded
teaspoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving 1 1/2 inches between the
cookies. Bake for 10-13 minutes or until pale golden brown. Cool the cookies on
the sheets for 1 minute, then remove to a rack to finish cooling.
