Butterscotch Oat Drops

These are quick and easy to make and can be turned into Diabetic friendly cookies by replacing the brown and granulated sugar with 3/4 cup of Splenda brown sugar.

1/2 cup Butter, softened
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
1 Large Egg
1/2 tsp Vanilla flavoring
1 cup All-purpose flour
1 cup Rolled Oats
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place butter in a bowl and cream it with sugars.  Then add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients to the batter in the bowl and stir until moistened.
  4. Drop dough onto ungreased cookie sheets by rounded teaspoonfuls, leaving 2 inches between each mound of dough.
  5. Bake on centre rack in oven for 8 to 10 minutes and let stand on cookie sheet for 2 minutes before removing them onto a cooling rack.
Note: You can add 1/2 to 3/4 cup of chocolate chips to make them even yummier.  I want to try butterscotch chips one day!
