<12 Days of Cookies – Oatmeal Butterscotch Chip Cookies
So I bought a bag of butterscotch chocolate chips… last year, and I haven’t done anything with them! To be honest, part of the reason behind the delay is that I don’t like them. I love butterscotch, don’t get me wrong, but just something about them in chip form that doesn’t taste as appealing.
Judge me if you want for using a bag of year old chocolate chips, but I finally made some cookies with them. I thought they would taste better in a cookie, cuz cookies always taste good but I was wrong. To be honest, I was super duper disappointed with these cookies. I didn’t like them at all. Thank goodness I have a lot of guy friends, and guys eat anything and everything so I gave them all away. “Take them!” I said. And took them they did.
Maybe I’m just being biased because I don’t butterscotch chips cuz after all, my friends enjoyed them!
I CAN’T BELIEVE THERE ARE ONLY 2 MORE DAYS TIL CHRISTMAS! AND I DON’T FEEL CHRISTMASY AT ALL. I THINK IM HAVING A CHRISTMAS CHEER CRISIS.
