I recently made an oatmeal butterscotch scotchies cookie recipe that I LOVED. These cookies are a twist on those. They have everything that’s good about the oatmeal butterscotch cookies, but with chocolate chips.
Tips for Perfect Cookies
- Use room temperature butter. If you don’t have time, place it in the microwave for a few seconds to soften it. Cold butter doesn’t cream properly and can cause the cookies to be crumbly.
- Once you add the dry ingredients, don't over mix the dough. Overmixing can cause the cookies to be tough and chewy.
- Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes before baking. This helps the cookies keep their shape and helps prevent them from spreading too much and becoming flat.
- Use parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. This helps prevent the cookies from sticking to the baking sheet.
- Don't over bake the cookies. When you take them out, they should still look slightly underdone in the center and just starting to brown on the edge. They will harden as they cool.
- Store the cookies in an airtight container once they have cooled.
If you want to mix things up, here are a few variations you can try:
- Swap out the chocolate chips for white chocolate chips.
- Add chopped nuts, such as pecans or walnuts, to the dough.
- Add a teaspoon of cinnamon to the dough for extra flavor.
Chocolate chip butterscotch cookies are a twist on a classic that everyone will love. They are easy to make and can be customized to suit your preferences. Whether you prefer dark chocolate chips or semi-sweet, or if you want to add nuts or spices, these cookies are sure to be a hit.
