White Chocolate Butterscotch- Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Wow, that's quite the cookie name huh? Try saying that 5 times fast. Just kidding! Sunday I got the itch to get in the kitchen and bake cookies, these were on my mind and no, they did not last long in our house.

A lot of my favorite cookie flavors are combined into one. You've got a nice chewy peanut butter oatmeal base. I then added in both white chocolate and butterscotch chips. It's quite the perfect combination if you ask me.

Don't those look yummy? Go make yourself a batch....right now. If they're gone within a day, I won't judge and I won't blame you.

It's going to get quite hot and humid here in the midwest these next few days. We'll definitely be spending any time outdoors in the early hours. I'm thinking lots of water play for the kids. It will also be interesting trying to keep my house cool as I have a good sized wedding to bake for on Thursday and Friday.  I'll share some pics on Monday. Stay cool!

White Chocolate Butterscotch- Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

1 1/4 c flour
1 c quick-cooking oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick butter
6 tbsp creamy peanut butter
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c granulated sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c white chocolate chips
1/2 c butterscotch chips
Splash of milk, if needed

Melt butter and peanut butter together in the microwave, in 30 second intervels. Remove and let cool. Combine flour, oats, baking soda and salt in another bowl.  Mix butter and peanut butter with both sugars. Add in egg, egg yolk and vanilla. Gradually add in dry ingredients and mix well. Fold in white chocolate and butterscotch chips. If dough seems a little too dry add in a splash of milk, I did this with mine.

Using a medium sized cookie scoop, place dough balls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 13-15 minutes at 325 degrees. Let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen.
