Oatmeal Scotchies

So, this picture was originally posted back in April of 2013 when I was living in Phoenix with a promise of getting the recipe to you “soon”…sorry about that. Here’s the updated recipe to try (Above 5,000 in elevation? Check out the high altitude recipe).

Makes 2 dozen cookies

What you’ll need:

  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg (optional)
  • 1 stick of margarine softened
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar **half of ¾ cup (12 tablespoons)**
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 orange peel grated
  • 1½ cups quick oats
  • a little more than half of a package of butterscotch chips
  1. Mix together the flour, soda, salt, cinnamon + nutmeg in a bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat together the softened margarine, sugars, egg.
  3. Stir in the orange peel with a wooden spoon.
  4. Using a wooden spoon, pour in half of the flour mix into the wet ingredients and mix well.
  5. Add the rest of the flour mix, and stir until everything is combined.
  6. Stir in your butterscotch chips and oats with a wooden spoon.
  7. Using two spoons or a scoop, drop the dough onto a baking sheet that is covered with parchment paper.
  8. Bake about 7 minutes at 375 degrees. Remove from oven and let them cool on the pan for a couple of minutes.
  9. Remove the cookies from the pan and transfer them to wire racks to finish cooling.
