Holiday Baking Simplified: Oatmeal Scotchies

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well and looking forward to a wonderful weekend! Do you have any special plans? Have you done any baking yet this Holiday season? I baked up a whole bunch of goodies earlier this week, and thought I would share one of my family's favorites with you...
Oatmeal Scotchies.

These cookies are incredibly moist, chewy, sweet, and delicious. Many of you may already have this recipe, but for those of you who do goes:


1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or grated peel of 1 orange
3 cups quick or old-fashioned oats
1 2/3 cups (11-oz. pkg.) Butterscotch Flavored Morsels


Preheat oven to 375° F.

Combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in oats and morsels. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake for 7 to 8 minutes for chewy cookies or 9 to 10 minutes for crisp cookies. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

That's it...incredibly easy to make, and oh so delicious!
Let me know what you think if you decide to give them a try! :)


  1. I've gotten no baking done and have no immediate baking plans, but those look delicious!

    OT - You must try the Madewell Modern Military Jacket!! It's new and I tried it on in store and bought it immediately. It's a heavier weight. So nice! I thought of you (even though I don't know you - haha - but I know you like their jackets like this and the weight of this is different than most others I've tried there or J. Crew).

    1. Meant to add, the 30% off applied. It's $198 full price.

    2. Thanks for the heads up, Cate! The jacket sounds fabulous...congrats on getting it, especially with the discount! I'm definitely going to look into this one. It sounds like it would be just my style. :)
