Recipe: Oatmeal Scotchies

This recipe for Oatmeal Scotchies comes from the folks at Nestle. I have made these every year at Christmas for many years…. my son discovered the recipe and one year at Christmas when he was off from school and I was at work …. I came home to find that he surprised me with them…. it is one of the nicest surprises and became one of his favorites cookies.

I must admit I love them too…. of course, we’re cookie people…. if there’s a cookie around…. beware… it may disappear before you get a chance to try one.

This cookie is positively addicting… the great butterscotch flavor and oats…. they are absolutely delicious…. and each year I still make them and bring them to him at Christmas…. it’s just one of those things you don’t stop doing just because they’re grown now…. at Christmas… the kid in all of us comes out.

If you haven’t tried this recipe from Nestle…. you must… I’m sure it will become a favorite!


Recipe: Oatmeal Scotchies

All you need:

1 ¼ cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups quick or old fashioned oats
1 2/3 cups (1 package 11 ounce) Nestle Toll House Butterscotch Flavored Morsels

All you need to do:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Line cookie sheets with parchment paper for easy cookie removal. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, stir until well combined.

In a large mixing bowl beat the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar until creamy.
Add the eggs and beat until well mixed.

Add the vanilla and continue beating.

Slowly add the flour mixture while the mixer is on low speed. Mix until well combined.

Stir in the oats and butterscotch morsels.

Using a medium size melon ball scoop, drop rounded scoops onto the lined baking sheets. (If you don’t have a melon ball scoop, either drop rounded teaspoons (actually about a teaspoon and a half) or roll dough into balls and drop on the baking sheets.

TIP: By making your dough into uniform sized balls or scoops… the cookies will bake evenly.

Bake at 375 degrees F. for 7-8 minutes for chewy cookies or 9-10 minutes for crisp cookies.

Cool on baking sheets for 2-3 minutes then remove to a cooling rack. Cool completely.

Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
