  • In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

  • In a large mixing bowl, mash the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar together until smooth and creamy, and beat in the eggs to make a creamy mixture. Gradually beat in the flour mixture, rolled oats, and 1 1/2 cup of butterscotch chips.

  • Press the dough into the prepared baking dish, and sprinkle the top with remaining 1/2 cup of butterscotch chips.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the top is golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan before cutting into bars and serving.

These were a hit! I only used 1 cup of morsels in the dough and just sprinkled a few on top and they were plenty sweet. Tip: Cream and Butter and sugars well - add the eggs one at a time incorporating each one then add your dry ingredients and just stir to combine. You don't want to develop the gluten in the flour. Spread into the pan and I baked for 30 minutes. Very tasty treat! Read More

I followed the recipe except for using chocolate chips instead of butterscotch (thought I had some but didn't). The dough was very dry and literally had to be pressed into the pan - there was no way of pouring it. The end result was very tough and they were only baked to the minimum time recommended. My husband asked where the chainsaw was so he could cut them up. I won't be making these again. The recipe definitely needs something - at least some vanilla. Read More

Very sweet but VERY good! These wonderful cookies scream for milk, smiles. We couldn't stay away from them, even enjoying them for breakfast the next morning. Really, how bad can they be with oatmeal as a main ingredient, smiles. This will be made again and again. THANK YOU! Read More

Very tasty! Lots of flavor and perfect texture. I followed it exactly with the addition of one teaspoon vanilla. These are definite keepers and better than the oatmeal scotchie cookies that I was too tired to make. I creamed the butter and sugar until fluffy prior to adding the vanilla and eggs. Wow! Thanks so much for sharing these treasures. Read More

These turned out wonderfully. I followed the ingredients/directions (except only had 1.5 cups butterscotch chips) and while the dough was thick, it was easy to squish down into the pan. Cooked 25 minutes and it was cooked through. Great crunch on the top and soft, almost gooey inside. Very sweet, but easy to cut up and make a lot of servings from. Thanks for a great recipe - it was a hit! Read More
