One our favorite cookie recipes is called The BEST Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. We make them very frequently -- one taste, and you'll see why!
So the other day, I made a batch of oatmeal cranberry walnut cookies. And, after Anyway, after we finished that batch, the Hubs suggested that I make his all-time favorite cookies, Oatmeal Scotchies.
The Hubs grew up on Scotchies, but I've always loved chocolate chip cookies. So, I just had to add both butterscotch and chocolate morsels to the batter, and we're both happy!
How to Make Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies with Chocolate Chips
This is basically the same oatmeal cookie recipe that you can find on the back of a bag of butterscotch morsels, except that I changed a few things.
Start by creaming butter and sugar and vanilla together. You can sneak a taste now if you want!
Then, add eggs. Mix your dry ingredients in another bowl, and gradually combine the two.
Whenever I make chocolate chip cookies, I always refrigerate the dough for a few minutes before baking. So, that's what I did with these cookies.
This step is completely optional. But, it seems to prevent the cookies from going flat while they bake.
Use a tablespoon or a small cookie scoop to scoop the dough onto a cookie sheet. I recommend lining the sheets with foil, parchment paper or silicone baking matts.
These are optional steps, but the results are worth it! Now, you're ready to bake!
The kids loved these oatmeal butterscotch chocolate chip cookies, and so did the Hubs. After all, it was his idea!
They're soft, chewy, sweet and loaded with chocolate and butterscotch. And, they taste amazing!

The flavor of these cookies is wonderful. I do wish I would have read Judi's post before I made these. Cookies spread A LOT. Filled up the whole jelly roll pan and burned around the edges. The 9x13 pan would have prevented that and kept them soft and chewy. If you are making cookies, keep them small and place them more than 2 inches apart. The batter is VERY thick and difficult to blend. I would recommend using a stand mixer.
Definitely a favorite Absolutely heavenly and decadently scrumptious!😊Thanks for wonderful recipe!
Thank you so much, Cindy! I'm glad you liked the cookies!
This is a perfect recipe! They are in the oven right now, only in a 9 x 13 pan because I was too lazy to scoop individual cookies. They will be lucky to last a day. Thank you for sharing! ❤

So glad they like the cookies! Thanks, Toni!
