Instructions Checklist
  • Beat the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat the first egg into the butter mixture until completely blended; beat the vanilla into the mixture with the last egg.

  • Whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together in a separate bowl. Beat the flour mixture into the butter mixture about 1/2 cup at a time. Fold the rolled oats and butterscotch chips into the resulting dough. If the dough isn't firm enough, mix in more rolled oats, about 1/4 cup at a time, until dough is of desired consistency.

  • Refrigerate the dough for 1 to 2 hours before baking.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Scoop up dough by heaping tablespoonful and roll into balls. Place cookies about 2 inches apart on baking sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until very lightly browned and cookies are set in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes. Allow cookies to cool for about 5 minutes before removing from baking sheets to finish cooling on wire rack.

I love traditional oatmeal cookies with walnuts and raisins so this was a nice change. It was a little sweeter than I prefer but that may be because of the quality of chips I used but it was still very good. Read More

The cookies were crunchy on the edges and chewy in the middle. They were delicious and easy. I didn't have cinnamon so I made the cookies without it. Everyone loved the cookies and I will make them again. I also added chopped walnuts... Wonderful! Read More

A tasty cookie we really enjoyed. I followed the ingredients and directions as directed. The only change was mine were in the fridge all day as I mixed them up in the morning and baked them in the evening. They held their shape and were crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Just how a cookie should be in our opinion. Read More

These were great I followed recipe but added more oats... not sure how much. This made a TON of cookies. I like small cookies... I rolled each one into a ball about the size of a large marble or undersized ping pong. One batch made 4 dozen. I may have added a lot more oats than I thought! Glad I made so many as everyone wanted to take some home. I love all cookies but these are different. I am the only person in my group who makes these. TIPS: You must refrigerate dough 1st. Roll onto balls for perfect circular cookies. Re- refrigerate if dough starts getting messy (sticking to hands) be wild add more vanilla or cinnamon to taste. Butterscotch is a strong taste don't go overboard on chips. Read More

This was the oatmeal butterscotch cookie recipe I was looking for! Tried several others and they just weren't right. I made exactly as stated. This has the perfect combination of butterscotch and oatmeal. Read More

Delicious cookies & great directions. I like the 2 tsp of cinnamon in them. (Used all I had on hand - quick oats - and about 2 1/2 cups seemed right.) Read More
