Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

I have found that people fall into one of two camps when having a preference for cookies – chocolate chip or oatmeal.  So for those of you that like oatmeal cookies, this recipe is for you!  The addition of butterscotch chips definitely takes the sweetness up a notch and even if you’re more of a chocolate chip cookie aficionado, this cookie may have you reconsidering oatmeal … you can’t eat just one!

Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.


  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
  • ¾ cup each brown sugar (packed) and white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 ¼ cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups quick or old fashioned oats
  • 1 package (11-oz) butterscotch flavored chips


Beat together butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy.  Slowly add flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda.  Stir in oats and butterscotch chips.  Drop or scoop into ½”-1” spoonfuls onto a parchment covered cookie sheet.

Bake for approximately 8 minutes until just starting to look cooked around the outside and beginning to bubble but still appearing a little undone in the center.  Let cool for a few minutes, then place on a cooling rack to cool completely.  Enjoy!
