Oatmeal Scotchies (a.k.a, my weakness)

I promise I will only eat one more.....

I do not know what it is, but something about this cookies causes me to lose all will power and self control. I am a peanut butter and chocolate girl, but when these cookies are around I can not get enough. I have not made these cookies in the past three years and the reason is because I can not stop eating them! The butterscotch mixed with the oatmeal and cinnamon is the ultimate combination. My boyfriend assumed he would not enjoy these cookies, but after just one bite he became a believer. I hope you try these cookies and love them as much as I do. I will not be making these again anytime soon, so I hope you enjoy (perhaps a batch of these will show up around my birthday in November)
