Bake With Bizzy

Welcome back to Bake with Bizzy.  I am baking cookies, these days.  This morning, I made Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies and threw in some chocolate chips, for the fun of it.  Add chocolate chips to almost any dessert and you have made it better.

This was a snap to make.  They are basic drop cookies with only brown sugar which gives them their flavor.  This only makes 24 teaspoon cookies.  Since, I am bringing them to school, the kids are only going to get one cookie, each and I feel badly about that.

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar 
  • 1/4 cup margarine, softened 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup butterscotch bits
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • Cooking spray 


  •  Preheat oven to 350°.
  •  Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife.
  • Combine flour, oats, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk. 
  • Place sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended (about 5 minutes). Add vanilla and egg; beat well. Add flour mixture; beat just until combined. Stir in butterscotch bits and chocolate chips.
  • 3. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on 2 baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 11 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on pans 1 minute. Remove cookies from pans; cool completely on wire racks.

Bizzy the Explorer - Week 4

 I am Bizzy the Explorer.  I am not happy with how Chaya was leading us on adventures, so I am taking over and she is resting.  I want to explore leftover turkey recipes.  That is what people really want.

Actually, I have a list of dishes, I have been wanting to make but Chaya was not agreeable and would not buy the ingredients.  I am changing this.  (Please don't tell her.)

This week, I have been traveling over mountains and beyond the oceans to find good leftover turkey recipes and I certainly found them.  You will have to track down the ingredients and I will help by giving you the addresses for the instructions.

We know that many of you are still eating turkey and are wondering what else can I possibly do with it.  Keeping in mind, "waste not-want not", I have come up with these wonderful recipes from our fellow bloggers.

I hope you like my way of exploring and what I have discovered.  I can't wait to explore again.
