Elijah's No Bake Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

When Pigs Fly....that what I used to say when Elijah asked if he could help....I thought it would be so hard to let my grandson help cook but you know if you use the right recipes its fun and makes wonderful memories with the kids. I bought a few Kids cookbooks and now we have a blast... He looks forward to cooking and always reminds me of the last thing we made.

Elijah's No Bake Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies
2 cups white sugar
1/2 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
3/4 cup butter
3 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 (3.4 ounce) package instant butterscotch pudding mix

In 3 quart microwaveable bowl, combine the sugar, butter and evaporated milk.
Cook on high power for 2 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until the mixture comes to a rapid boil. Allow the mixture to boil undisturbed for 20 to 30 seconds. Remove from heat and stir in the instant pudding and oatmeal. Spoon onto waxed paper lined cookie sheets.

Allow to sit at least 15 minutes or until firm.

I Love Yummy Bread!

I got this recipe from a friend and at first I thought "oh ....Thank You" (I won't make that) and then I did and it really is good! I was thinking pumpkin and butterscotch doesn't sound like a good combination and it really is! So broden your horizons and give it a try! I did!

Pumpkin Butterscotch Bread
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup quick oats
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cloves
3 eggs
2 cups pumpkin puree
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease two 9x5 loaf pans. In a large bowl, mix flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt and spices together. In separate mixing bowl, beat together eggs, pumpkin, sugars, oil, and milk. Add dry ingredients to pumpkin mixture and blend well. Stir in butterscotch chips. Fill prepared loaf pans and bake for 45-60 minutes, depending on size of pan. Bread is done when toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pans for 10 minutes before removing to cooling rack.
