Do you have questions about this recipe? Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions.
Oatmeal scotchie cookies are oatmeal cookies loaded with cinnamon and butterscotch chips.
It depends on the recipe. Some recipes rely on chilling the dough before baking to control spread. However, other recipes like this one, rely on forming the dough into balls that will spread as they bake.
If you use too much butter, the cookies will spread too much and be greasy. The same will happen if you use too little flour.
