Cal Staller's Butterscotch Crunch

Last night I decided to make Robert a treat for when he got home at midnight. Cookies. As you remember, you kids make better cookies than I do and I did not want to make Chocolate Chips. So I thumbed thru my handwritten cookbook and came across this recipe from Cal...Pam's sweet dad. They were easy and fast and turned out perfectly. But they are the kind of cookie you just wanna keep eating. So be warned.

Mix together:
1 cup shortening ( I used butter flavored Crisco but the plain is fine)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 t. vanilla

Add 2 eggs to the above, one at a time, blending each til fully combined.

Add in:
1-1/2 cup flour
1 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
3 cup oatmeal

Roll into tablespoon size balls and place on cookie sheet or stone.

Bake 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees til just barely browned. You will know when these are ready to come out.


  1. I made these cookies this morning and they were YUM!

  2. I love Cal! I'm going to have to try these cookies and think about Cal as I do it.
