Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies II

These are VERY crispy and yummy. These are also part of my neighbor gifts=)

Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies II
1 cup butterscotch chips
3/4 cup unsalted butter
2 tablespoons boiling water
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups quick cooking oats(I think I used old fashioned...I don't buy quick cooking)
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1 pinch salt
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. In a small saucepan, melt butterscotch chips and butter over low heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. In a medium bowl, stir together the boiling water and baking soda. Stir in the melted mixture, then stir in the flour, quick oats, sugar and salt. Mix until everything is well blended.
3. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto unprepared cookie sheets. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Cookies will be very crisp. Remove to cool on wire racks.
