  1. For those of you having trouble with the cookies being, dry, crumbly, or are having trouble removing them from the cookie sheet, it's probably because there is not enough butter in the dough. Try a full cup of butter, not 3/4 cup. For those having trouble with flat cookies, simply refrigerate your dough until it - Read more ...
  2. This recipe is verbatim the same recipe from the Nestle bag. Having said that, I usually have to increase the butter for the "bag" recipes. I increased butter to 1 cup, and baked a test batch. They spread a little more than I like, so I added a tablespoon of flour, and insted of dropping - Read more ...
  3. These cookies are sooo yummy! I took some of the suggestions and lowered the temperature to 350 also and baked for about 9 minutes. I also refrigerated the dough for about 5 minutes and greased the cookie sheets with Pam. They turned out chewy and disappeared quickly! Thanks for the great recipe! :-)
  4. This was a nice, classic cookie. I like my cookies to be soft and chewy so I took the advice of another review and cooked at 350 for about 9 minutes. Those were perfect for me. My husband likes crunchy cookies, so his were cooked for about 12-13 minutes. He's thrilled - I'm thrilled. Everyone's - Read more ...

They did stick to the cookie sheet - Read more ...

I prefer a somewhat thicker cookie, and after adding extra four to the remaining dough, had the perfect oatmel butterscotch cookie. I would strongly suggest adding an additional 1/2 cup of flour to - Read more ...
  7. These cookies are scrumptious! I can remember my mom making these for me when I was younger and we called them "Oatmeal Scotties" - I did make a few changes in the cooking temperature. I lowered the baking temperature to 350 degrees, and baked for 8 minutes. I lined the cookie sheet w/ parchment, and - Read more ...
  8. These are good but they're PERFECT if you only bake them 6.5-7 minutes. Nice and chewy and just PERFECT. These are now my trademark cookies.
  9. Neither myself or my fiance really care for butterscotch but I decided to make these for a welcomed change... and WOW!!! We both loved these- the textures and tastes were fantastic. I found it useful to cool the dough a little in order to keep them from flattening out. I made cookies twice the stated - Read more ...
