Oatmeal Scotchies

3/4 c brown sugar
1/2 c sugar
3/4 c butter, room temperature
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 c flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 c oats
3/4 c butterscotch chips

Combine the butter and sugars and beat until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla.
In a separate bowl combine all remaining ingredients except the oats and butterscotch chips. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well. Form 1" balls and space 2" apart. Bake at 350 degrees, 10-12 minutes. Allow them to cool on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes. Remove and cool on wire racks. If you like, melt about 1/2 c of butterscotch chips and pipe a swirl on each cookie.
