How fast is this week going?! Loving it. Let’s celebrate it being almost Friday with my newest cookie, shall we? I found this beautiful jar of dulce de leche caramel sauce from Argentina at the grocery store last week that I couldn’t wait to add to a cookie.
I must say these cookies were incredible right out of the oven, but I think my favorite was when I stuck a couple in the refrigerator. They got perfectly chewy and I could hardly keep my hands out of them.
I love oatmeal cookies, especially with butterscotch and caramel
Add your butter and sugars to your stand mixer.
Thanks to my little stinker for helping dump the eggs in
Here’s a closer look at that caramel sauce I was telling you about. It’s by La Salamandra and it’s so dreamy. Worth every penny. Like I said earlier, you can certainly use your favorite caramel sauce as a substitute.
Add those dry ingredients to the mix.
…..and those butterscotch chips.
Sneak one or two if you’re crazy
Yes, it’s done!
My little helper earned a good lick or two.
On the cookie sheet they go and into the oven.
Here they are, perfectly fabulous.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with a silpat liner or parchment paper.
2. In stand or electric mixer, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy, a good 2-3 minutes. Slowly add in eggs, vanilla and caramel sauce.
3. Place flour, oatmeal, salt and baking soda into a large bowl, mixing to combine. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with butterscotch chips.
