Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

It’s cookie time!

I have had some butterscotch chips in my cupboard for quite some time just waiting to be used, so I decided upon a Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookie.  I wanted these cookies to have a lot of texture and lots of bits of goodness in every bite so I added some walnuts and flaxseeds in with the oats and butterscotch chips….Just a side note, every time I type butterscotch, I type it like butterschotch, sigh.

These little gems came out tasting great and were full of flavour.   They have made it into my top 5 cookie list, and will be making some repeat appearances.
