I should have known better than to try something that involved icing and decorating... I just don't have the talent for baked goods decorating; however they looked so cute on Pinterest... After doing two, I called it quits. The only thing left to do is get rid of evidence... yum... If you would like details on how to make the adorable version, go to BHG. Good luck!
The inspiration for this Pinterest find came from Priddy Creations. I changed the pattern to suit my needs. I now have a use for leftover scraps...

Yes, I'm a Pinterest fan. I've pinned tons a stuff to my virtual boards. It's been fun and the cells in my brain have been bouncing around wanting to do something as lovely as what I have pinned. That's when I decided to actually document my "takes" on some of the pinned items. Here's my first creation! They don't look anything like the pinned photo... that's fine. BTW they were delicious...
If you would like to see the original version with the recipe just follow the link to A Spicy Perspective.

I don't love Chocolate Chip Cookies... there, I said it! I do love Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies! Here's the original recipe for these wonderful chewy bites. I added the butterscotch morsels because they go so well with the oatmeal. Enjoy!
Soft Oatmeal Cookies
Prep Time: 15 Min | Cook Time: 10 Min | Servings: 2 dozen | Difficulty: ---
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 cups quick cooking oats
In a medium bowl, cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in oats. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls, and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Flatten each cookie with a large fork dipped in sugar.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
