Oatmeal Scotchies

A softy chewy classic oatmeal cookie with butterscotch chips.


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 ⅓ cups brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1-1½ cups butterscotch chips Dealers choice on amount


  • Combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl - set aside
  • In a mixing bowl cream shortening, eggs, sugar and vanilla until combined and smooth - about 2 minutes
  • Slowly add flour mixture to creamed mixture until flour mixture is completely combined
  • Add in oats and butterschoth chips - stir until combined
  • Drop by teaspoon on a cookie sheet - I always use parchment paper for easy clean-up, even baking on bottoms and so cookies don't stick
  • Bake in a pre-heated 350° oven for 12-15 minutes
