Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

I decided to skip this weeks TWD recipe for Brioche Plum Tart. I thought it sounded good, but didn't have the time to dedicate to it. So instead I decided to make Nate's favorite cookie. I didn't know how much he enjoys all things butterscotch until I made this the first time. They do in fact taste pretty good, and they're simple to mix up. I can't remember where I first found the recipe, but Nate is sure glad that I did.

3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
