Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

You are in for a treat with my oatmeal butterscotch cookies! I had to make some cookies for the cub scouts last week and while rummaging through my baking cupboard, I decided to make these Brown Butter, Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies. If you haven’t browned butter before, what are you waiting for? It truly makes one decadent cookie. It takes about 5 minutes of melting and swirling your saucpan of butter and before you know it, it turns a gorgeous deep golden brown color and smells incredibly nutty and fabulous.

Tips For Making The Best Cookies

  1. Don’t alter the recipe, use all ingredients as listed.
  2. For a more firm cookie, refrigerate your cookie dough for 24 hours before baking.
  3. Always use butter, not margarine.  ALWAYS.  I prefer salted butter for my chocolate chip cookies.  Try it!
  4. Do not ever grease your cookie sheets.  Will make cookies spread and change texture.
  5. Don’t skip creaming your butter and sugars for a good 2 minutes.  Helps create a fluffy, chewy cookie.
  6. Try sprinkling dough with just a touch of salt for a perfect sweet and salty combination.
  7. Don’t overtake your cookies.  Cookies will continue to cook on hot cookie sheet when removed from oven.
  8. Let cookies cool completely before storing in containers. This will keep their crispness
  9. Store leftover cookies in an airtight container for 3 days room temperature.

    These are delicious! I made a double batch over the weekend. My yield was slightly less than yours, using a heaping tbsp scoop. The batter was such an intersting consistency; I was nervous they weren’t going to turn out. They did! I took to several bbq’s and they were a hit everywhere. I almost followed the recipe except for splitting 1/2 butterscotch chips and 1/2 semi-sweet choc chips.
