flowerChocolate Butterscotch Oatmeal Chewy Cookies

These cookies are the bomb!!!  I got this cookie on the internet a few years ago and it has become a favourite.  I made some for the Hospice I volunteer at.  When I start taking the first cookie sheet out of the oven there, they quickly disappear.  Who doesn’t like a warm cookie right out of the oven??? The chocolate is all gooey, the nuts crisp….nice andsoft..whatacombination!

When I made them last week at the Hospice my hubby quickly requested that I make some for home…today is the day!

This is a huge recipe…makes six dozens cookies….I used a #24 scoop.  I baked them for 10 minutes on convection…two cookie sheets at a time.

So here goes!
