These crispy butterscotch oatmeal cookies with a nutty texture are delicious. A new favorite!
If you open my baking cabinet you often have to be prepared to catch a falling ingredient. I tend to create too much of a stockpile of bags of morsels. Especially, around the holidays. I have bags and bags of various sizes and flavors so that I am ready to whip up any recipe when the mood strikes. Butterscotch morsels are no exception and I have been wanting to make something with them to help clear out space in the baking cabinet. You know, to make room for other baking ingredients. 🙂
I love to find a new cookie recipe that I know I will use again and again. These crispy oatmeal cookies are just that. This recipe is from a church cookbook from my hometown. I love those cookbooks because they hold personal connections with them. I love flipping through them and recognizing a name and knowing that person is probably sharing on the their favorite recipes.
I used my ninja to grind the pecans and that provides a great texture and the butterscotch morsels are optional but I highly recommend them.

Just found your blog and these cookies are gorgeous! Pinned!
Thank you, Jocelyn! I appreciate the pin. 🙂
these look yummy!
Thank you, Dina!
We're making these now, and they are good! Noticed during the process, though, that your recipe doesn't say when to add the oats, nuts or add-ins. I put them all in after the flour was mixed in, but I thought you'd want to know. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Thank you, Lisa for letting me know! I'll update the recipe. I'm glad you like them! 🙂
