Fresh out of the oven, Oatmeal Scotchies are an easy way to bring a smile to anyone’s face!
A universal favorite, and we don’t have nearly enough of them on Garnish with Lemon. There’s no better way to rectify that than with an old favorite, Oatmeal Scotchies. Fresh baked cookies make the house smell heavenly, bring a smile to anyone’s face and always taste better than anything you can buy. I mean really, who doesn’t love cookies? And if you don’t, I’m not sure we can be friends (although that would be mean more cookies for me!).
Oatmeal Scotchies never get the love they deserve. Chewy on the insides, crisp around the edges, they are filled with crunchy oats, butterscotch chips and cinnamon. Everything about them reminds me of fall. Pumpkin and apple shouldn’t get all the love; there’s room for everyone.
The secret to a great oatmeal scotchie? Chilling the dough after you make it. If you don’t, the cookies will spread when they bake resulting in a flat, thin cookie. Trust me and chill it. Better yet? Make a double batch. Use a cookie scoop to portion the dough, freeze it, and you can have oven fresh cookies on demand.
After all, the waiting is the hardest part.
