Oatmeal Scotchies with Brown Butter Glaze

My mom asked me to make cookies for the nurses at the hospice who took really great care of my mom's great aunt while she was dying. My mom went to the hospital every night for a few weeks to sit with her aunt and while she was there, she formed many relationships with everyone there. My mom is someone who can start up a conversation with anyone, anywhere. She is such a great woman and she has the biggest heart out of anyone I know (and I am not just saying that because she is my mom!) She truly is an amazing person.
I decided to make Nestle's oatmeal scotchies recipe which is on the back of their butterscotch chip bag and I drizzled a brown butter glaze on top. These were very good. They were crispy on the edges and soft and chewy on the inside. The only thing I would have liked better is if they were a little bit thicker. These cookies were pretty thin and I like my cookies to be on the thicker side, but they still tasted great. The glaze was a perfect topping and was very simple to make.



Nestle's Oatmeal Scotchies
-1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
-1 tsp. baking soda
-1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
-1/2 tsp. salt
-1 cup butter or margarine, softened
-3/4 granulated sugar
-3/4 cup packed brown sugar
-2 large eggs
-1 tsp. vanilla extract or grated peel of 1 orange, (I used vanilla)
-3 cups quick or old-fashioned oats, (I used a mixture of both because that's what I had)
-1 2/3 cups (11-oz. pkg.) Nestle Toll House Butterscotch Flavored Morsels
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla in large mixer bowl. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in oats and morsels. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake 7-8 minutes for chewy cookies; 9-10 minutes for crispy cookies. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
Brown Butter Glaze:
-3 tablespoons butter
-2 cups sifted powdered sugar
-1/4 cup milk
-1 teaspoon vanilla
Directions:
Melt and stir butter in a saucepan over medium until it browns. Remove from heat and beat in the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla (add more milk if needed to get the right consistency.) Drizzle over cooled cookies.
