Oatmeal Pan Cookie

My husband loves oatmeal cookies, but lately I just don't feel like making cookies. Bars are so much easier and faster! So this makes one big giant oatmeal cookie in a 9x13 pan. He actually liked it better than the cookies because they were thick and soft.


Oatmeal Pan Cookie
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups quick cooking oats
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  3. In another mixing bowl, combine butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla. With an electric mixer at medium speed, beat until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour mixture to the butter mixture to blend. Stir in oats and butterscotch chips; mix well.
  4. Spread batter into baking dish; bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden and set.

You realize that you don't mention butterscotch chips until the end of Step 3? You may want to add that to the ingredients list.
