Laurie's Story

I mix up all of the dry ingredients in a gallon size freezer bag. You can do this ahead of time and always have the mix available for bake sales or cravings. This is a very simple recipe and quite delicious with the combination of salty cashews and sweet butterscotch chips. Let's not forget the oatmeal which is wholesome and crunchy.


1/2 c
granulated sugar
1/2 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1/2 tsp
1 tsp
baking soda
3 c
rolled oats
3/4 c
coarsely chopped roasted salted cashews
11 oz
bag of butterscotch baking chips
2 large
1 1/2 stick
butter, softened

1 tsp
vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Measure all of the dry ingredients into a gallon size freezer bag or large bowl. Seal the bag and shake gently to combine or stir with a wooden spoon if using a bowl.
I find that a stand mixer is the easiest way to mix this dough but you may use a wooden spoon by hand or an electric hand mixer.
Pour the dry ingredients into a mixer bowl. Add the moist ingredients.
Beat on low until all ingredients are combined and no dry ingredients remain visible. This comes together quickly. It only takes a minute with a mixer.
Grease clean hands and roll dough into walnut sized ball. Place on ungreased baking sheet and flatten slightly with your hands. leave 2" space between cookie dough.
Bake 10-12 minutes. Let sit on baking sheet for 2 minutes. Remove to rack to cool. Store in tightly sealed container
Hide these cookies if you wish for them to stick around for any length of time!

    I took these cookies to 2 family members in the hospital. They loved them. These will also be included in my new book. They have a strong butterscotch flavor.

    I'm working on it on this site. It's all desserts. Whenever I offer to bring something to someone's house, they say "Just bring dessert!" That's going to be the title. The only other book I made was self published on Heritage Cookbooks. It's entitled "Food to Share." It's my family cookbook that I made for my daughter and Granddaughter. I bought a few of them and gave them out for gifts. Now, I'm sticking to this site as it is free. I would have loved to get it published by a publishing house but as I have found with other projects I've written, it is impossible to get a Literary Agent or publisher unless you are famous or have some other connection. Have you published on this recipe site?

    I have made 12 cookbooks and gave the first two to my daughter, she was married 2 yrs ago and now she is pregnant with her first baby boy due 8/10. I wanted her to have my recipes, it was easier than her calling me and asking how I made this or that ~ haha It will be my first grandchild.
    I am making baby blankets and just a baby shower for her ! Can't wait !
    I know of others on this site that couldn't get their cookbooks published either due to a Literay Agent or publisher. I love this site !
