Oatmeal Butterscotch Craisin Cookies

For several years this cookie has been one of my favorites to make and share.  During holidays I make several batches as gifts holding back some to freeze for us.  The problem is they never make it to the freezer. 

I discovered a trick that really brings out the flavor in the cookie.  After the ingredients are mixed I put it in a heavy duty plastic container that seals tight then store it in the refrigerator covered for a few days.  An empty orange sherbet or half gallon ice cream container seals really well. 

Another thing I’ve noticed is that any butterscotch morsel will do, but the Nestles brand tastes the best.

Instructions 

1.    In a large bowl mix butter, honey and brown sugar. Add vanilla and eggs and beat until creamy. I mix my cookie batter by hand, but you can use an electric mixer on low speed. 

2.    Add flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Blend together until well mixed. Stir in oats and then craisins. When mixed add butterscotch morsels. 

3.    Using a cookie or ice cream scoop drop dough in a rounded spoonful onto the ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten them out a little with your finger. 

4.    Bake for about 9-11 minutes or until golden brown. Do not over bake. Cool 2 minutes before placing them on a wire rack. Make sure the cookies are completely cooled before storing them.  

5.    These can be frozen and are really good with coffee or tea.
