Day 9: Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

I dislike butterscotch cookies.

BUT I love butterscotch…. dilly bars!

Why would I make a cookie I don’t eat?? These are not the only cookies I bake that I don’t eat. I make many things that I don’t actually like. The worst thing to make is molasses cookies.  I make those for my grandfather, only because I dearly love him.

I made these cookies for my roommate.  She loves butterscotch cookies. I hope when she gets home she will be pleasantly surprised by the 2 1/2 dozen cookies waiting for her 🙂
