A Thrifty Treasure And A Tasty Treat


Whenever I visit the Thrifty store I always look for tea cups first
and I was so delighted to come across this sweet tea cup.


Of course it had to come home with me :)


And it now has a special place with all of my other tea cup treasures.


 I find the colors to be so bright and cheerful.


I think it's time to enjoy a lovely cuppa tea in my "new" tea cup
and some tasty oatmeal butterscotch cookies freshly baked and warm from the oven.


The cookies have a delicious aroma thanks to the cinnamon and cloves.


Here is the recipe for you to enjoy.

Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup butterscotch-flavored chips

In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an elctric mixer for 30 seconds.
Add brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and cloves.
Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally.
Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined.
Beat in as much flour as you can with the mixer.
Stir in any remaining flour.
Stir in rolled oats.
Stir in butterscotch-flavored chips.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart
onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 8 - 10 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
Cool on wire racks.

Hi Stephanie - Do you know what is the weight in grams the 2 teaspoons full of cookie dough you have on the recipe. I want to know so I can be precise with the end result of the cookies.
