Nestle's Oatmeal Scotchies are probably my all-time favorite cookie. This is saying a lot, as I absolutely LOVE cookies. When I make them, I follow the recipe exactly. That is notable as I almost never follow recipes at all, other than as a general guideline. Even when baking, I'm far more likely to tweak things than to do things 'correctly', step by step. But Oatmeal Scotchies are so good that they need no improvement!
However, this time I started making the cookies without realizing that we didn't have the full amount of butterscotch chips required. I didn't want my cookies to have inadequate amounts of butterscotch chips, so I made the batter as directed, split it in half, and added half the required amount of chips to one half of the dough.
What to add to the other half? I dug around in the pantry and found white chocolate chips and Craisins. The resulting cookie was delicious! Not as good as Oatmeal Scotchies, but definitely fantastic.
