Oatmeal Scotchies are a classic oatmeal cookie recipe full of butterscotch chips. This cookie is simple and easy and it’s one of my favorite cookie recipes!
BEST Oatmeal Scotchies Recipe
When I was a kid, I hated butterscotch. Detested it. My mom would make rice crispy treats and add a package of butterscotch chips and I wouldn’t touch them with a 10-foot pole. But, as I’ve gotten older, my picky palate has improved.
When I started this blog I didn’t like a lot of things. And that changed with time: Almond Joy candy bars now. Like, love to the nth degree. And I used to hate coconut more than I hated butterscotch, and lemon desserts were a no-go too. Now lemon desserts are one of the most popular on this blog and coconut is one of my favorites. Same goes with butterscotch.
I grew up making oatmeal cookies, but hadn’t ever added butterscotch until I was an adult. Several years ago I wanted something without chocolate for those (confusing) people who don’t like chocolate and I’m always worried about making peanut butter at potlucks, so butterscotch it was.
I feel like oatmeal cookies are totally underrated, when they’re actually one of my favorites. I grew up making the Quaker Vanishing Oatmeal Cookie recipe, and I still love them to this day.
