Oatmeal Butterscotch Apple Pie Cookies


And here it is…the cookie of all cookies… butterscotch + apple pie + cookies? Yes please!


Oatmeal Butterscotch Apple Pie Cookies



1/2 cup butter, room temperature

3/4 cup dark brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 egg

3 tsp vanilla extract

1 2/3 cup rolled oats (old-fashioned or quick, not instant)

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

2 medium size apples, chopped

1 cup butterscotch chips



  1. Cream the butter and sugars together using a hand mixer on medium speed. Once smooth, add the egg and vanilla, continuing to mix with the hand mixer for roughly 2 minutes until all ingredients are completely combined.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the oats, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt together.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients using the hand mixer on low. Mix until just combined.
  4. Fold in the apples and butterscotch chips, being careful not to over-mix.
  5. Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes (if you have the time to!).
  6. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  7. Lightly grease a baking sheet, or line with parchment paper
  8. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, or roughly one rounded tablespoon, and place onto baking sheet, making sure to leave a couple inches of space between each cookie.
  9. Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes once removed from oven.

Best served warm, just like fresh apple pie…but in cookie form!
