In Northampton, Pennsylvania, Victoria Zmarzley-Hahn bakes these chewy oatmeal cookies that are full of butterscotch chips and raisins. "Every so often I add a half cup of chopped pecans to a batch for something different," she notes.

"These cookies are fabulous - my kids and I love them! I've made these several times over the years now and they are gone in no time. My only changes are also adding 1 t. of baking powder and instead of just 1/2 c. of butterscotch chips, I add 1 c. I also add 1 T. of pure vanilla to mixture. You will not be disappointed with this recipe!"
