I have toyed with this original recipe & find it to be a much better performing oatmeal scotchie cookie recipe. I used 1 1/2 cups of flour, 1 tsp. salt,1 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon 1 cup of butter flavor Crisco, 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 c. granulated sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla, 2 eggs, 2 cups of old fashioned rolled oats & 12 oz pkg. Nestle Butterscotch Morsels. Combine as stated in the original recipe but bake at 350 degree's instead of 375 for 8 1/2 minutes on parchment paper. The Butter Flavor Crisco makes for a nice chewy cookie instead of crisp & hard & the 1/2 cup more of flour helps build a sturdier cookie. I hope you all give my version a try & you will have the same great Oatmeal Scotchie's but a better texture cookie. :)
These were a pretty good cookie - just what I was looking for to give to my dad as he can't have chocolate. I doubled the recipe but kept the morsels the same. I made about half of the batter into normal sized cookies. I baked for 4:30 and turned the pan and then baked another 4:30. They came out perfect. The second half of the batter I used for jumbo cookies. I used a standard 1/4 cup ice cream scoop full of batter, level. then slightly flattened them onto the pan, six to a sheet on parchment. Baked at approx. 6 minutes, rotated pan, and another 6 minutes was just about right for these. Fantastic while still warm, but don't keep these around for long - they go stale pretty quickly.
Wow! I enjoyed these cookies too much. I made them for my grandkids but I couldn't keep my hand out of the cookie jar! Very easy too.
