I only like eating butterscotch in the fall and winter.
There is something about the deep rich flavor that seems too heavy for warm weather.
So last weekend while we were enjoying the cool, fall weather, I decided to make these cookies.
I found a few different recipes and decided to go with a simple oatmeal cookie recipe and add cinnamon.
You can adjust these cookies in many ways depending on what you’re in the mood for.
Any flavor chocolate chip or spice would be a great addition to this dough.
It’s rich and buttery and the perfect cookie for this crisp fall weather.
Recipe: Oatmeal Butterscotch Spice Cookies
1 Cup (2 sticks) Butter, softened
3/4 Cup Sugar
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 1/4 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
3 Cups Quick Cooking Oats
1 Bag Butterscotch Chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter and sugars together.
Once light and fluffy, add eggs, one at a time, mixing well with each addition.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
Add vanilla to batter after eggs are well combined and mix together.
Slowly add flour mixture until well combined and add oats.
Once combined, stir in butterscotch chips.
Roll dough into medium sized balls and place on a cookie sheet. Place into oven and bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges of the cookie begin to brown. Remove from oven and cool cookies on a cooling rack. Serve and enjoy!
