Oatmeal Peanutbutter Scotchies

These oatmeal cookies won the Mrs. Fields & iVillage 30th Anniversary Cookie Contest
Oops, that link didn't work. Here's the link to that actual cookie winner:
I also saw Claire make them here:
I also saw them over at Cookie Madness, but now I can't find her link.
We really love oatmeal scotchies, so we really enjoyed these too.
Here they are in a cookie jar my s-i-l gave me years ago.
Oatmeal Peanut Butter Scotchies
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups chunky peanut butter (not the sugar free kind)
4 1/2 cups rolled oats (can do all old fashioned or do half old fashioned and half instant depending on your texture preferences)
2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 whole eggs
2 tsp baking soda
1 bag of butterscotch chips
3/4 cup chopped pecans
Cream butter, peanut butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Stir in oats, soda, butterscotch chips and nuts until combined. Drop by spoonful on a greased cookie sheet or use parchment paper. Bake 350 degrees for 12 minutes (brown on bottom and some browning on top). Cool on cookie sheet 5 minutes before removing to cooling rack. Makes 72 cookies.

And these are delicious with tea for breakfast. Oatmeal is a breakfast food, right?

I really love our Christmas plates. My brother got them for us one year, & we always use them now in December. Helps to put us in the Christmas mood. It's now about time to pack them up for the year.
