These oatmeal scotchies are a fun twist on the traditional oatmeal cookies.
Loaded with butterscotch morsels, these cookies are beyond delicious.
Oatmeal cookies are perfectly cooked when they are a bit crispy on the edges, but perfectly soft and chewy in the middle.
*I halved this recipe in the pictures below*
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
Whisk and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar.
Cream until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
Add in eggs and vanilla extract. Continue to beat until combined.
Gradually add in the flour mixture and mix until there are not any visible dry ingredients.
Stir in some old-fashioned oats and butterscotch morsels.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375ºF and prepare a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper.
Drop dough onto prepared baking sheets by rounded tablespoon.
Bake for 7-8 minutes or until crunch around the outside and soft in the centers.
Cool on baking sheets for a couple of minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
Oatmeal scotchies can be kept at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
