Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

These delicious oatmeal cookies are chewy in the middle from melted butterscotch chips with enough crispiness on the edges to crunch a little when you bite. The recipe is from Laura Vitale's YouTube channel. It's included below.

Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

  • 1 and ¾ of a Stick of Unsalted Butter, at room temperature
  • ¾ of a cup of Brown Sugar
  • ¾ of a cup of Regular Sugar
  • 3 cups of Oats
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp of Vanilla Extract
  • ½ tsp of Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • ¾ of a tsp of Cinnamon
  • 1 ¼ of a cup of All Purpose Flour
  • 2 cups of Butterscotch chips


Preheat oven to 375 deg F.

In a large bowl, combine butter and sugar (brown and regular). Cream together with a whisk.

Then add eggs and vanilla extract. Continue to mix until well-combined.

Then add flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Mix until batter is smooth.

Finally, add butterscotch chips and oats. Batter should become doughy, so mix them in a folding motion.

Scoop a spoonful of cookie dough ball onto a baking pan lined with wax paper (or use a non-stick baking pan like Laura used in her video). Be sure to leave a couple of inches in between each ball to allow for expansion when baking.

Bake for 9-11 minutes until the edges are light and golden brown.

Let cool in a rack for 5-10 minutes before serving.
