Oatmeal scotchies are one of the best Christmas cookies ever! They are super simple to make and filled with the yummy flavors of chocolate chips, butterscotch, and cinnamon!
Easy Christmas cookies are always something I am on the hunt for. I love holiday baking but don’t have a lot of time to commit and, honestly, I’m not that great of a baker. This oatmeal scotchie recipe saves the day as a tasty and easy cookie that will be at the top of your holiday baking list year after year.
I originally made these oatmeal scotchie cookies as a last minute panic baking session for a bake sale I had forgotten that I had committed to. Now, I make several batches throughout the holiday season to give as gift, use in cookie swaps or just to keep around the house.
When making this oatmeal scotchie recipe, be sure to choose a high quality butter because you will definitely be able to taste it in the finished cookie. I typically choose unsalted but I know a lot of people prefer to use salted since that is what is already in their kitchen.
These oatmeal scotchie cookies are such easy Christmas cookies that you will put them at the top of your list every time. Plus, I haven’t met a single person who hasn’t loved them making them a huge crowd favorite.
