Oatmeal Scotchies

These cookies are TO DIE for. I love love love them. I got this recipe from my friend, Lydia, here in West Virginia. You definitely can't just eat one or two of these babies. They're addicting and just plain delicious, especially if you like oatmeal cookies and craisins. You can make 'em with white chocolate chips instead of craisins if you're the kind of folk that doesn't eat their fruit shriveled.

Oatmeal Scotchies
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups quick oats
1 cup flour
2/3 cup butterscotch chips
2/3 cup craisins (or white chocolate chips)
Cream wet ingredients (sugar, butter, shortening, eggs, vanilla) in large bowl. Sift dry ingredients in medium bowl. Add to wet mix and combine. Bake at 375 degrees for 9-11 minutes on ungreased baking sheet. Take off cookie sheet and place on cooling rack immediately. Enjoy.
