Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookie Recipe

Kick these cookies up a notch and call them Oatmeal Scotchies. By substituting butterscotch chips for the chocolate chips, they’ll taste totally unique!

Oatmeal Cookies Tips & Tricks
Use the best chocolate chips or chunks that money can buy. It really does make a difference in taste. Likewise, high-quality butterscotch chips like Nestle’s tastes better than the store brand.
Substitute chopped pecans for the walnuts if desired. For the best flavor, toast pecans first. Place whole or halved pecans on an ungreased cookie sheet, and toast in a 350-degree oven for 10-12 minutes, stirring a few times until light brown and fragrant. Let cool and set aside.
Omit the chocolate chips and nuts and add 1 1/2 cups seedless raisins for the best oatmeal raisin cookies.
