Oatmeal Butterscotch Caramel Cookies

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.

Here’s your basic line up of ingredients and that beautiful jar of dulce de leche I found. Use any caramel sauce you prefer or even make your own. I have a recipe here if you’d like to use this one 🙂

How to Make the Best Oatmeal Cookies

I love oatmeal cookies, especially with butterscotch and caramel 🙂

Add your butter and sugars to your stand mixer.

Cream away!

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.

    Oatmeal Scotchies are my favorite cookie! I made some over the weekend. But I love the addition of caramel, Jenny. I actually made salted caramel yesterday to add to salted caramel frosting I will be posting this week. I should’ve thrown some of that into the cookie dough. Next time though!
