Welcome back to Bake with Bizzy. I am baking cookies, these days. This morning, I made Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies and threw in some chocolate chips, for the fun of it. Add chocolate chips to almost any dessert and you have made it better.
This was a snap to make. They are basic drop cookies with only brown sugar which gives them their flavor. This only makes 24 teaspoon cookies. Since, I am bringing them to school, the kids are only going to get one cookie, each and I feel badly about that.
