Oatmeal Chocolate Butterscotch Chip Cookies

I love butterscotch chips in cookies. I think it’s one of my favorite cookie add-ins.

My mom’s best friend Jill makes these awesome oatmeal cookies with only butterscotch chips and they are some of my favorite cookies – ever!

Nick and I wanted some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies a while ago, so I made the Quaker Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe that’s usually on the lid of the oatmeal canisters but I used 1/2 semi-sweet chips and 1/2 butterscotch chips instead of all chocolate.

Before baking:




Hello Mrs. Butterscotch Chip

The mix of semi-sweet chocolate and the sweet, buttery butterscotch was SO good! It made for a really good balance in the cookies. I don’t know if I can make these without butterscotch chips now!

Here’s a few more shots just for good measure  :)


Crispy goodness…


If you haven’t tried this recipe, you should! I’ve never tried it with the raisins – I like chocolate and butterscotch too much to do that  :)

What’s your favorite cookie?

    Oh wowza, those cookies look great! Hmm… my favorite cookie? That’s a tough question – my mom makes various great cookies, her classics are great; chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies… I always did love peanut butter cookies straight out of the oven, when they’re kind of chewy and warm in the middle… mm, love.

    I have to agree with Sara… there’s really no cookie that I would turn down. But I do reach for chocolate chip first! Always :)

    My favorite cookie is the carrot cake cookies I make. You can check out the recipe on my blog! They taste so sinful, but they’re actually healthy! =)

    Yum! My favorite cookie is definitely either oatmeal (love that you added butterscotch chips!) or snickerdoodle. But really, you can never go wrong with a cookie!
