There’s something about Fall that makes me want oatmeal cookies. I can’t tell you why, but there it is. Other people crave pumpkin, but I’m all butterscotch and caramel.
I do love all the spices I add to most of my cookies, but these have an old fashioned flavor. I got the recipe from an old neighbor years ago. It’s almost like a grandma recipe. She was from South Carolina so maybe that’s why.
These aren’t very sweet, but they really hit the spot if you want a wee nibble with a cup of coffee or tea.
3/4 cup Crisco
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups oatmeal
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon soda
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Cream Crisco, sugars, egg, water and vanilla until creamy. Add combined remaining ingredients and mix well. Stir in butterscotch chips.
Bake 12 to 15 minutes.

Add nuts, raisins or chocolate chips for variety if you like those.
My recipe says they will make approximately 5 dozen cookies. Liars!
and remember: Your only limit is you. Big kiss, Lynn
