Butterscotch Cookies

My work has hosted an annual cookie recipe exchange the last 8 or 9 years.  There are quite a few of us, and none of us want to bake 20 dozen cookies, so we bake two per person and attach the recipe.  I begin hunting down a new/different recipe in October or November.  Last year I had this whole sandwich cookie selected, but then.....time got away from me and I needed something that sounded no fail, but included some favorite ingredients.  I found this in an old cookbook.  If you like butterscotch and oatmeal, this is your cookie.
Butterscotch Cookies

Ingredients: 3/4 c butter (softened), 1 c sugar, 2 eggs, 1 1/2 c flour, 3/4 t baking soda, 1 t salt, 1 t ground cinnamon, 1/3 c milk, 1 1/2 c quick oats, 6 oz butterscotch morsels, 1 c raisins, 1/2 c chopped pecans
