One of my favorite cookies from childhood is the classic Oatmeal Scotchie. My brothers loved Chocolate chip and Snickerdoodle…but I have always had a special place for butterscotch chips.
And it’s not until I bake them, that I realize over and over how much I love them.
As I’m trying to get back into the swing of things after moving (read: unpack and settle in), I chose to use the classic Nestle recipe for today’s cookie bars.
I tweaked it slightly, changing the ratio of brown sugar to granulated sugar (using more brown of course!). I also added a little extra cinnamon.
And, in true Shugary Sweets style, a thick layer of frosting tops these cookie bars.
I made a very creamy cinnamon frosting for today’s recipe. By beating my softened butter for 3-5 minutes, it gets light and fluffy. Then add the cinnamon, salt, powdered sugar and milk (I used fat free milk) and beat an additional 3-5 minutes. This creates an unbelievably soft texture!
I shared these at a potluck with some friends. It’s so awesome to move “home” and have friends. And it’s crazy to think we’ve been away for almost 8 years! But now we’re home and I’m a food blogger (which is a new gig since I was last living here) and I have a whole new group of people to share my treats with daily.
Life is good. Life is delicious. Now go make some of these super easy, super yummy treats.
