Addictive Oatmeal Cookies

I need to learn to sleep apparently. Last night instead of going to bed early and thus making it probably easier to wake up for a run in the morning, I decided to make 4 dozen oatmeal cookies.  Yes, that’s right 4 dozen.  I could have halved the recipe, which I sometimes do, but it seemed more exciting to have bags of cookies to hand out to random passersby. Anyways, these are so good.  I usually alternate what I want to put in them (I never put raisins)… chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, cranberries… mmmm. So without further ado…

Preheat oven to 350.

2 sticks butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups oatmeal
1 cup delicious/optional addition (I used 1/2 cup chocolate chips, 1/2 cup butterscotch chips)

Cream butter and sugars together.  Add eggs and vanilla.  Mix well.  Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.  Mix well again.  Stir in oatmeal, and then stir in any additions. Spoon onto cookie tray and bake 10-12 minutes. Makes about 4 dozen.
