    Boy, do these look good! Reminds me of my childhood. My mom used to make us oatmeal cookies. The kind that were soft and gooey in the center but crisp on the edges, just like this. Good memories. But I don’t think we ever had them with butterscotch chips, this sounds like comfort in a cookie. I would love to have this with my morning coffee!

      Perfect with your morning coffee, Nikki! Oatmeal is the perfect comfort food. I love anything baked with it…plus, you get a little extra fiber.

      Ahh, thanks, Erin! It’s always fun to pretty things up πŸ™‚ These were a gift so had to package them up nicely. My friends loved them, so let me know how they turn out for you.

    Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies are my husband’s favorite (and I love them, too!). I love how thin and crispy this version is. I bet it has such a great texture. YUM!

    • Erin says

      Yes, such a good and tasty cookie! I love when cookies have crispy edges. Except for chocolate chip, I like those chewy. Thanks for stoping by, Jenna!

    Hi Erin, oats belong in cookies, it makes them so moreish. These cookies with their cinnamon and butterscotch chips sound the business, not sure I can get butterscotch chips here though (may have to think outside the box on this one!).

      Oatmeal is so great to bake with, Lindi. It’s one of my favorites! It’s like one of those comfort food you just can’t get enough of πŸ™‚

    • Erin says

      Thanks, Keri! They are on my must bake list all the time πŸ™‚ I just love the texture the oatmeal gives them, but the butterscotch give it something special!

  8. Katrin says

    Mmmh, I love oatmeal cookies and to add some butterscotch is a great idea! I love how pretty they look as well, almost too nice to eat them πŸ˜‰ Thanks, Erin, for sharing at Sweet Inspiration #2! I appreciate it!

    They look amazing! I’m trying not to make cookies right now, you know, trying to be fit and summer-ready,…but I might just be cheating this weekend πŸ˜‰

    Found your blog from the Linky Party

      Thanks! They are amazing, for sure! I know bathing suit season is around the corner, but a cookie now and again just makes life a little better. Since they freeze so well, you can keep them for later πŸ™‚
