Double Chip Oatmeal Cookie Bars

When the grocery stores had baking supplies on sale before Christmas I bought a few bags of various chips for cookies. They had been in the cupboard for almost three month and I wondered what to make with them. Then I remembered the Oatmeal Scotchies recipe from Mommy’s Kitchen. I’m the only one who likes butterscotch chips so I adapted the recipe using a mix of chocolate and peanut butter chips and made it into bars instead of drop cookies. The tweaks turned out fabulous. I think this is my new favorite cookie.
