Oatmeal Butterscotch Toffee Cookies

Do you love a good Oatmeal Cookie?

I combined some of my favorite things in these Oatmeal Butterscotch Toffee Cookies.  They are not only super moist and have a great flavor, but they are also crunchy and chewy.  It knew I had a hit with these cookies when my oldest daughter told me she liked them better than chocolate chip cookies, and she loves chocolate chip cookies.  These are also my husbands favorite cookies.

My hilarious experience with an automatic car wash yesterday.

This story has nothing to do with these cookies, but it was hilarious so I had to share it.   After dropping my daughter off at school, I stopped by the grocery store.  I wanted to pick up some ingredients to bake cookies.  My son, Casey’s baseball team, is playing in the regional playoffs this weekend.  My special needs son, Caleb, loves to bake cookies to share with the team after the games.   The team loves Caleb’s cookies and Caleb enjoys baking and sharing them.

After leaving the store, I stopped to get a car wash.   I pulled in the automatic car wash, and it started soaping my car.  It completely soaped half of my car and stopped.  I waited 2 minutes and then 3 minutes.  Finally, I decided to leave.  I had soap completely on one side of my car and pollen on the other side.  I turned my wipers on to wipe away the suds so I could see.  My son, Caleb, was with me.  He has cerebral palsy seizures and selective mutism.  He was busting out loud laughing at our situation.  We pulled up to a red light.  A man in a pickup truck in front of us had his window down.  We saw him completely hang his head out his window to see what was on our Suburban.  When we got on the main road, soap suds were flying everywhere.  By that time, we had everyone looking at us.  I was teasing Caleb and told him to put his sunglasses on and duck, but he was laughing so hard he could not move.  Yes!  We finally made it to another car wash.   God also allowed Caleb and I to experience a hilarious moment that we will never forget.  

Proverbs 17:22   (NIV)

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

  • 1 cup butterscotch chips


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. In a medium bowl with an electric mixer on high-speed, cream the butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla.
  4. Mix in dry ingredients; just until blended.
  5. Fold in oats, toffee bars, and butterscotch chips.
  6. Chill the dough for 20 minutes in the refrigerator.
  7. Drop cookies in large spoonfuls onto the baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
  8. Bake 12 minutes until the edges are golden but still wet looking in the middle.

    I too love these Oatmeal Butterscotch Toffee Cookies. I am going to try blog about these ingredients in an easy to make skillet cookie soon. You will have to watch for it. Skillet cookies are so easy to make I have been baking way to many of them.

    Blessings and have a great 4th of July,

    I can be too serious a lot of the time. I need a good laugh every once in awhile. My special needs son rarely says a word and cannot make a complete sentence, but he definitely understands. He was laughing his head off at me, which made me laugh at his belly laugh. We had a good time.

    Thanks for commenting and sharing!

    These cookies are full of flavor. My family was just asking me yesterday to make another batch. My special needs son has had 17 brain surgeries and has cerebral palsy. When he laughs it is truly a belly laugh and the whole car shakes.

    I love the half a car wash story. I hope you were only charged for half a wash too! Not much sounds better than a belly laugh from a child, it’s both uplifting and heart warming at the same time.

    My husband loves cookies, but gets a bit board of chocolate chip ones, so I may well give these a go.

    My car wash experience was truly hilarious. We are still laughing about it. Soap was flying everywhere. No one was there to give me a refund and I did not want to hang around. I was in a hurry to get to a car wash that worked.

    I am going now and check out your blog. Thank you so much for stopping by and your very kind words.

    These Oatmeal Butterscotch Toffee cookies are truly hard to resist. I made a double batch and froze them. I scoop them out on a baking pan using an ice cream scoop and freeze the dough. I then put them in large freezer bags.

    Awww what a great story! I am glad I found you at Tasty Tuesday! And those cookies look like my family would try to eat the entire pan before we even finished the next batch! YUM!

  • Erlene May 6, 2014, 11:45 PM

    How funny. I hope you got a refund for your car wash.

    Yum. Can I classify this as a breakfast cookie because of the oatmeal? lol. Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday linky party.

  • dianeroark May 4, 2014, 7:25 AM


    I wish I lived closer so I could make you some of these cookies. They are really Yummy! I made two huge batches this time and put them in the freezer. We all like our cookies fresh right out of the oven. Unfortunately, when I checked last night I had 4 cookie dough balls left. Where did they go?? I think my kids have been eating them raw.
    This weekend and next weekend is my sons baseball playoffs, regional and state. My husband’s parents have been and we have been watching a lot of baseball on Friday and Saturday. I hope today will not be as hectic or HOT!

    Thank you so much for your kind words and for stopping by.
    Blessings and have a great day!

    Week, you have finally gone and done it by finding my weakness with oatmeal cookies and Health Bar Toffee Crunch. Not kidding when I say two of favorite things and you know I will be trying this soon. And the car wash story totally made me giggle, too. Happy Sunday and hope you are enjoying your weekend so far :)
