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.

How To Make Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

  2. Place butter into a small saucepan over medium heat. Swirl and heat until deep golden brown. Remove heat and let cool for 5 minutes.
  3. Place browned butter and little bits from the pan into a stand mixer along with the brown and granulated sugar. Beat to combine then add eggs and vanilla beating to combine. Add flour, pudding mix, quick oats, baking soda, salt and chips. Mix on low until just combined.

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.
