I got a blister from my mixer! And oatmeal butterscotch cookies

Man, I seriously need to get a new mixer, and preferable one of those kitchen aid stand mixer. I was on one of my baking marathons (which I'll explain later), when my palm started to hurt. Turns out I got a blister from holding it too much! Can you believe that?! A blister! From my Hand Mixer. Gosh, I sound really lame, getting a blister from a mixer. Haha, that sentenced rhymed :)

Okay, so the reason for my baking marathon is because it's one of my closest friend's sweet sixteen this week, and part of my spectacular sweet 16 bday gift is a huge box of homemade cookies! Sounds yummy, right? Well I wanted to make an assortment, so I made snickerdoodles, peanut butter cookies, oatmeal butterscotch cookies, s'mores cookies, cranberry chocolate cookies, and caramel cuts. It sounded like a good idea when I thought of it, but now, well, my hand hurts, and I'm covered in flour. How fun....

The first recipe will be for oatmeal butterscotch cookies!

Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies
From Smitten Kitchen
1/2 cup (1 stick or 4 ounces) butter, softened
2/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup butterscotch chips

1. Preheat oven to 350°F
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together. Stir this into the butter/sugar mixture. Stir in the oats, and butterscotch chips
4. Place rounded tablespoons on a cookie sheet
5. Bake for 12 minutes or until lightly browned


  1. Wow! That must have been a lot of mixing! I didn't think it was possible to get a hand blister from a hand mixer.....
    I'll have to think twice next time I decide to go on a baking marathon too!

    That sounds like so many cookies!! And they all sound delicious too =) Have you given the cookies to her yet??

  2. A baking marathon sounds like so much fun! But getting blisters from a hand mixer? Not so much. :)The cookies look great too.

  3. Your cookies look so nice and puffy or something.
    I asked my husband for a fancy mixer for Christmas this year. Even printed him off the one I want and hung on the fridge.

  4. Von: Yea, it was! Haha :)
    Yup! She (and everyone else) loved them!

    Holly: Thanks!

    Adriana: Yea, it was fun...the blister not so much...

    Medifast Coupon Codes: thanks! Haha great way to send him the message..did he get it?

  5. Looks very yummy cookies, Thanks for sharing this recipe.
