So what do Texans do on a snow day?

This picture makes me laugh, look at the snow on top of the handle of the buried shovel. You can see part of a tree top on the ground. We will have some cleaning up to do.
So after all the fun of playing in the snow we needed something to fill our bellies so of course I thought of sugar. I had this recipe on my list of cookies to try and today was the perfect day to try them out.
This cookie is really tasty, especially if you like butterscotch and toffee. It is a simple Toll House cookie recipe, and I added few extra's to it to suit our taste buds. Give them a try, they are delish!
Toll House Butterscotch Chip Cookies
2 sticks butter, softened
¾ Cup sugar
¾ Cup brown sugar
2 large eggs, room temp.
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 ½ Cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
½ Cup quick oats, this is my add in
2 Cups butterscotch chips
1 Cup Heath Toffee Bits, this is my add in
Mix together the flour, salt and baking soda in a small bowl, set aside.
Cream the sugars and butter together, add the vanilla.
Add the eggs one at a time.
Slowly add the flour mixture.
When completely mixed, add the oatmeal, butterscotch chips and toffee bits, mix well.
Drop by the spoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet. I used my medium scoop and lined the cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Bake 8-10 minutes at 375F degrees. Cool on wired rack for 10-15 minutes or till completly cool,
