Oatmeal Scotchies

I’ve only had these cookies a handful of times with the last time being at least 15 years ago, if not longer. A few weeks ago, seemingly out of nowhere, I had a strong taste for them. I ignored it, but the taste persisted & today while grocery shopping I made my way to the baking aisle knowing full well I would succumb. I baked, ate several, and am sated for at least another 15-20 years. I bagged the rest up & am sending the remaining with Bri to take to work tomorrow.


  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 11 oz package of Nestle Toll House butterscotch chips


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Beat the butter & sugars together until light & fluffy. Beat in the eggs & vanilla extract. Stir in the baking soda, salt, & cinnamon. Add the flour & stir until just incorporated. Lastly, add in the oats until combined & then stir in the butterscotch chips.

Use a large cookie scoop & drop onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 8-9 minutes & transfer to cooking rack.
