Oatmeal Scotchies


It's time to bake with the Fill The Cookie Jar group! This month's theme is Father's Day Favorites, and my dad has always loved butterscotch. Sweet and chewy, with rich butterscotch in every bite, these classic cookies will brighten your day.

Oatmeal Scotchies  Print Recipe
Makes 4 dozen

1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
1 package (11 oz.) butterscotch flavored chips

1. Heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.

2. In large bowl, beat margarine and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine, then add to butter mixture and mix well. Add oats and butterscotch morsels; mix well.

3. Drop dough by level tablespoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake 7 to 8 minutes for a chewy cookie or 9 to 10 minutes for a crisp cookie. Cool 2 minutes on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.

  1. I so love Oatmeal cookies and probably weird, but as a kid they were always my favorite even over chocolate chip. So, I totally pinned to try, tweeted and also linked up one of my cookie recipes here today, too. I hope you also will link these up at the Pin It Hop today with me, as well!! :)

  10. Ok, I am probably the only person in the world that has never had an oatmeal scotchie, so I'm going to have to try them. They sound delicious, so I'm not sure why I've never made them, and I know I've never been offered one because I would have tried it. Definitely on my baking list now.

  17. This is probably my favorite cookie of all. :) I frequently see "new and improved" oatmeal cookie recipes online. Sometimes, fiddling with perfection doesn't pay! Butterscotch does something magical when it comes in contact with oatmeal and brown sugar! The texture, the taste....this kind of "old-fashioned" cookie perfection can't be made better!

  18. My gramma used to make these!! I need to make these soon and relive some memories! :)
