I like to watch "Warehouse 13," and in the pilot episode one of the main characters offers the others homemade oatmeal scotchies to welcome them to the Warehouse.  Every time I see that scene, I wonder "Why don't we have oatmeal scotchies all the time?"  They don't get nearly as much press time as chocolate chip cookies, but they're just as easy.  In fact, there's a rumor out there that some people actually like them more than chocolate chip!  This recipe was on allrecipes.com


  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 2/3 cups butterscotch chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F
  2. In a large bowl, beat the butter or margarine, white sugar and brown sugar together.  Add the eggs and vanilla, beating well.
  3. Stir together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.  Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and stir until blended.  Stir in the oats and the butterscotch chips.  Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges begin to brown.
Notes:  When I brought these in to Clayton's work, the guys loved them.  If you want more info about the recipe (nutrition info, servings, etc.) go to the above link at allrecipes.com.
