Oatmeal Cookies with Butterscotch Chips and Toasted Hazelnuts

We are leaving for vacation tomorrow and I wanted to make some cookies to take with us.  I love oatmeal cookies and have had a bag of Butterscotch Chips that I wanted to use up so I thought I would combind them.  The toasted hazelnuts were a last minute addition but added some great crunch.  These cookies came out great, chewy just the way I like them. 

Look out Maine, here we come!
