Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chippers
~Sense of Home Kitchen~

Makes approximately 5 dozen

1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
4 1/2 cups oatmeal
3/4 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 375° F.

Cream sugar, brown sugar, and butter together.  Add eggs, vanilla, honey and mix well.  Stir in baking soda, peanut butter, and oatmeal and mix until all ingredients are moist.  Add chocolate chips and butterscotch chips and stir until just combined.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet and place in preheated oven.  Bake for 9 minutes, or until just lightly golden.  Remove from oven and let cool on sheet for a minute or two, they will firm up and finish cooking. Leaving these cookies in the oven until brown will make them crispy rather than chewy.  Cool on rack until room temperature, store in air-tight container in freezer.  Take out of freezer several minutes before serving, they will thaw quickly and taste "from the oven" fresh.
