I saw in my stats a few days ago that one view was referred from a blog where I found and made a previous recipe, so I used the blog search bar to find what I’d made and whom I’d credited for the recipe. When I clicked the link to the other site, I saw a recipe for a no-bake butterscotch oatmeal cookie and followed it through to discover it’s the same type as the chocolate and oatmeal no-bake which many of us have made over the years. I’ve never tried it with butterscotch chips, but they’re a favorite in a couple cookies I make so I decided to give them a go.
Well, I didn’t have quick oats and thought it might be necessary to go to the store as my cupboard stocks old-fashioned oats and that type of oatmeal is more chewy in the chocolate cookie than I like. However, a quick search indicated the difference between old-fashioned and quick oats, at least in the tall cylindrical containers, is chop-chop-chop so I got the Magic Bullet out of the cupboard and made a half batch to test.
I also didn’t have unsalted butter as my limited Christmas baking this year depleted my stock, so I used regular butter and still put a teeny, tiny sprinkle of flaked sea salt on top as the cookies were setting.
The recipe which I halved to make one dozen as a test is at https://www.alattefood.com/no-bake-butterscotch-cookies/
We like ’em. A bit of cookie and a bit of candy with heart healthy oatmeal. Happy New Year!
