Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies - Christmas Goodies for the Neighbors

I grew up in a neighborhood where everyone knew each other.  I wondered if I would find that living in a large city like Charlotte and I am happy to say that I have.  I have a great neighborhood.  We have about 250 homes of people in all ages and stages.  Our neighborhood association is getting active and we care about each other.

I started putting together my Christmas goody list and was overjoyed that there are 22 neighbors that I listed.  22!  I love it.  I love to cook but am not the best baker so I was excited when I found this recipe for Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies.  I think these might just become a Hayden tradition.  They were simple and so good!
