In the mood for a sweet, chewy treat? Try these Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies!
I’d like to say I make everything from scratch around here, but it’s not quite true. I do aim for that goal as much as I can, but sometimes it’s nice to effortlessly bake up some frozen french fries or refrigerator cookie dough. The other day I was in Target (my favorite place on Earth), and I saw something new in the cookie dough section: Oatmeal Scotchies. Not only did these cookies have an irresistibly adorable name, the oatmeal-butterscotch combo sounded delicious. Just before dropping the package of Scotchies into my cart, I thought, “Hey, wait a minute. I know how to make oatmeal cookies!” Knowing I had all the other ingredients on hand, I hurried over to grab a bag of butterscotch chips and went home to bake. Mixing these up was only a little more work than plopping the pre-made dough on a baking sheet, but I felt like they were a little more wholesome since I used fresh ingredients. I was lucky to have these four cookies to photograph because the rest were devoured in lightning speed. I hope these butterscotch oatmeal cookies are a hit at your house too!
