Not just another oatmeal cookie! This one is loaded with butterscotch chips (hence the name) and of course, the goodness of oatmeal.


  • 2 sticks unsalted butter softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 cups Quaker Oats regular oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 11-ounce bag butterscotch chips - frozen


Cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Mix in the eggs and vanilla until well combined.

Combine the flour, oatmeal, and baking soda and mix briefly. Then add the butterscotch chips and mix until combined at low speed.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Roll the dough into 1" balls and place with lots of room on the parchment paper. Bake cookies at 375 degrees F for about 10-12 minutes. Cool slightly then move to wire racks to cool completely. Yields around 4 dozen cookies.
