Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

I forgot to take a [prettier] picture of this, but…these are super good! Definitely not healthy, but…at least there’s oatmeal in it? (Twisted logic, I know.) We had a holiday potluck last Thursday (one of our first potlucks in many, many moons) so we could all get together and hang out before leaving for winter break (our last one ever!).

We used the refrigerator to get a picture of all of us. :O

The recipe is adapted from here! I went to Kosina/Andrea’s (they basically live in the same place) to help make enough food for an army. We ended up having enough leftovers to each make a plate (or three) to bring to school to eat while taking our COMSAEs.
