Baking Cookies with the Kids . . .

Tonight we made Nestle’ Oatmeal Scotchies. 


W and E each took turns helping me add ingredients to the  batter and then spooned some dough onto a cookie sheet.  They were incredibly patient until I put them on the cooling rack and then there was no distracting them from wanting cookies!





  • 1 1/4 cups unsifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2  eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups Old-Fashioned Quaker oats
  • 1(11ounce) package Nestle Toll House butterscotch-flavored morsels (about 2 cups)


    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
    2. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a small bowl; set aside.
    3. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract in a large bowl.
    4. Gradually beat in flour mixture.
    5. Stir in oats and morsels.
    6. Drop by rounded Tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet.
    7. Bake 7 to 8 minutes for chewy cookies, 9 to 10 minutes for crisp cookies.
    8. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes, remove to wire racks to cool completely.
