Oatmeal Scotchies BiscottiPosted: January 26, 2010 | |
I was craving biscottis again and wanted something a bit different and thought of my favorite cookie, oatmeal scotchies. After a bit of searching I found this recipe and adapted to make my scotchies!! Mine came out a bit flatter than normal but still tasted great!
1 cup butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups quick oatmeal
2 cups butterscotch chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together butter, sugars, vanilla and eggs. Fold mixture in with flour and baking powder. Mix in oats and chips.
Onto a parchment lined baking sheet, spoon out mixture to form 2 logs the length of the sheet. Leave enough space in between each log, since they will spread while cooking. For smaller cookies use 2 baking sheets and form 4 logs. (I found 4 logs works best. I did 2 large and they were just too big, so before the second back I cut into strips and cut those in half)
Bake for about 2o minutes or so, so that when you touch the tops they are firm and lightly brown. Remove from the oven and cool 10 minutes.
Slice logs diagonally and place on sides on the baking sheet. Put biscotti back in the oven and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes depending on how crisp you like your biscotti. (I left them in for 10 mins as we like them crispy). Cool and store in an airtight container.
