Whatcha Making Wednesdays ..... Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

This week in our K4 class, I had 4 of the girls all by myself (usually there are other mommies)... which made baking time a little tricky... especially when you add in a 2 year old who was not so interested in napping... but... we made it work and the girls made Nestle Tollhouse Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies... I had them pair up to work together...

Having the girls in pairs was actually a great way to practice team work...and... taking turns...
Smooshing in the butter and sugar...
Squishing in the eggs...
The finished cookies...


  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or grated peel of 1 orange
  • 3 cups quick or old-fashioned oats
  • 1 2/3 cups (11-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Butterscotch Flavored Morsels


PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

COMBINE flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in oats and morsels. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE for 7 to 8 minutes for chewy cookies or 9 to 10 minutes for crisp cookies. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

We've made the donuts several times because they're super easy! Once we did 1 T of lemon juice and 1 t of lemon zest with a vanilla glaze...and by adding 1 T cocoa made chocolate ones! Yum!

How cute! You're very brave for baking with all of them by yourself! ;)

Baking with a two year old in the house is always a challenge. It looks like the girls did great!
