Today I’m bringing you some great flavors of a classic – We are creating Oatmeal Raisin Bars with Butterscotch. Oh My Word, these are delicious!
I love making traditional cookies but bar cookies cut the time and work in half and offer up the same flavor in a more sturdy vehicle. That’s why they get included in my mailed care packages on a regular basis, or brought along with me when I travel and want to bring treats for the kids to enjoy along the way.
With a tender soft cookie texture, the taste of butter, brown sugar, butterscotch, and raisins these will become a quick favorite. They also remain moist and delicious in your cookie jar – if they live long enough to make it there. This is also a great recipe to let kids help out with! Oh, did I mention they are made with baking mix? It just keeps getting easier…
- Baking Mix
- Dark Brown Sugar
- Butterscotch Chips
I’m using a Buttermilk Biscuit Baking Mix by House-Autry. I normally use whatever baking mix I can find but I really feel like this one makes a richer cookie. You can use whatever you have on hand.
Melt butter in the microwave and place in a large mixing bowl. Add baking mix…
