For those of you having trouble with the cookies being, dry, crumbly, or are having trouble removing them from the cookie sheet, it's probably because there is not enough butter in the dough. Try a full cup of butter, not 3/4 cup. For those having trouble with flat cookies, simply refrigerate your dough until it is somewhat firm. My rating is a four only because I don't care for the butterscotch chips, but these cookies are one of my husband's favorites!
This recipe is verbatim the same recipe from the Nestle bag. Having said that, I usually have to increase the butter for the "bag" recipes. I increased butter to 1 cup, and baked a test batch. They spread a little more than I like, so I added a tablespoon of flour, and insted of dropping them on the cookie sheet, I rolled the dough into 1" balls. The rest of them came out perfect!
These cookies are sooo yummy! I took some of the suggestions and lowered the temperature to 350 also and baked for about 9 minutes. I also refrigerated the dough for about 5 minutes and greased the cookie sheets with Pam. They turned out chewy and disappeared quickly! Thanks for the great recipe! :-)
These cookies are scrumptious! I can remember my mom making these for me when I was younger and we called them "Oatmeal Scotties" - I did make a few changes in the cooking temperature. I lowered the baking temperature to 350 degrees, and baked for 8 minutes. I lined the cookie sheet w/ parchment, and after I had baked the cookies, I let them cool for about 5 minutes, and had no problem w/ the cookies sticking to the pan, or breaking, etc., They were very soft, and not brittle...great recipe!
This was a nice, classic cookie. I like my cookies to be soft and chewy so I took the advice of another review and cooked at 350 for about 9 minutes. Those were perfect for me. My husband likes crunchy cookies, so his were cooked for about 12-13 minutes. He's thrilled - I'm thrilled. Everyone's happy!
These cookies taste great, just as I remember as a kid. However, my cookies spread significantly and were very thin and lacy. I prefer a somewhat thicker cookie, and after adding extra four to the remaining dough, had the perfect oatmel butterscotch cookie. I would strongly suggest adding an additional 1/2 cup of flour to the batter for thicker cookies that don't spread too much.
These are good, but they're PERFECT if you only bake them 6.5-7 minutes. Nice and chewy and just PERFECT. These are now my trademark cookies.
These cookies were very yummy! I only used 1 cup of mini butterscotch chips, and they turned out fine! I think I will use a little less sugar, and a little more cinamon and vanilla the next time I make them. Using parchment paper definitely made it easier. They did stick to the cookie sheet on the first batch.
