Butterscotch Oatmeal M&M Cookies

I am taking a cookie break today 🙂  I created this cookie for a guest post on Layla Grace. Have you been to their website? I could spend a fortune there, cute stuff including this awesome cake stand that I use daily!

My cookie today is the Butterscotch Oatmeal M&M Cookie. I LOVE a good oatmeal cookie and this one hit the spot. Hope you enjoy 🙂

The stars of the show in this cookie 🙂

Don’t forget the oats 🙂


I like to top the cookies with M&M’s rather than mix them in the dough. Less breakage this way 🙂

Super adorable Jessie Steele oven mitt from the Layla Grace site.

My cute hubby came home for lunch and….

    I couldn’t taste any of the butterscotch, so I wasn’t too impressed by these cookies.

    I baked mine on a regular cookie sheet. My first batch completely flattened out and I had to cut the cookies apart. I refrigerated the dough for 30 minutes and did NOT flatten it after I scooped it onto the sheet, and that solved flattening out problem. Also, my cookies got brown really quickly, so I baked mine at 340 degrees.

    Can I just use a cookie sheet? Its 9pma and I want to make these for church tomorrow am and just noticed the muffin ban part of the recipe!

    I made these the other day and they were really good, but I couldn’t taste the butterscotch at all! I added about a cup and a half of butterscotch chips and they turned out amazing! I took them to class and impressed more than a few people 🙂
