Comment on this recipe

This is our grandson's, Jonah, favorite cookie since he was little. He's in the Navy now and expects grandpa to mail some to him whenever possible.

Ingredients

1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup softened margarine
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups oatmeal (quick)
1 cup butterscotch morsels

In a small bowl combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside. In a large bowl combine margarine, sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla. Beat until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour mixture. Stir in oats and butterscotch morsels. Drop by level tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
