1 c butter softened

1 c brown sugar

1 c sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp pure rum extract

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

2 c AP flour

3 c quick cook oats, blended in blender until coarse ground. Makes 2 1/4 c ground oats

11-12 oz butterscotch chips


4 Tbl powder sugar

1/8 tsp rum extract

2-3 tsp milk to thin enough to drizzle icing

Preheat oven to 360°

In a large bowl cream butter, sugars, vanilla, rum extract and egas until creamy. Sift flour, salt, baking powder and soda. Mix into creamed mixture and mix completely. Add ground oatmeal and stir until combined. Stir in butterscotch chips until all combined. Place by small cookie scoop or teaspoon onto parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake for 8-9 minutes or until edges are barely golden brown. Centers will still look slightly wet. Cool on cooling racks. Combine ingredients for glaze making it smooth with no lumps. With a spoon drizzle glaze over cookies. Will keep for 2 weeks in air tight container or will freeze up to 3 months.

Option: Place a long sheet of plastic wrap on counter. Place 1/2 cookie dough along center. Wrap cookie dough with plastic wrap and roll into a log about 4″ in diameter. Cover in foil, twist ends and freeze. When ready for a cookie unwrap and slice into 1/2″ slices and bake as directed but for 10-11 minutes if frozen.
