Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies Recipe


Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies Recipe

These Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies are flavorful, soft, and chewy.  They’re great cookies for the Fall season and incredibly easy to make.


These cookies are soft and chewy so it’s best to roll these into smaller balls before baking.  If you make the cookies too large they will crumble and fall apart while they are cooling.  After the cookies have cooled on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes, transfer them to cooling racks to cool completely.

  1. Omg. I LOVE oatmeal cookies, but oatmeal butterscotch! You’re trying to kill me with deliciousness. This looks so good. Definitely gonna have to make me some bomb cookies. Thank you ?

  2. This recipe reminds me of my childhood. My mom would make these cookies and we would eat them when they were warm. They’d be a little crispy and we’d get a glass of milk. Good memories.
