I know, I know, another dessert recipe! Something about Fall just makes me want to bake all the time. These Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies with Brown Sugar Glaze are a perfect for any Thanksgiving get-together or holiday cookie exchange.
A few weeks ago Andrew and I were in the grocery store. We passed by the baking aisle and he pointed out the butterscotch chips and told me that Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies were his all-time favorite. I tucked the idea away for the next time I wanted to make him a surprise treat.
Since I’ve been working from home, I have been able to take a break in the middle of the day to have lunch with Andrew at his work or bring him something sweet (a few weeks ago it was my Pumpkin Cake with Salted Caramel Glaze!).
There’s nothing like a warm oatmeal cookie. It’s one of my favorite things! The butterscotch chips add flavor and sweetness, while the glaze is literally the “icing on the cookie.” It’s a good thing these cookies are small, because they are so sweet!
For the cookies:
- 2 sticks butter, softened
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 1/4 cups oats
- 1 11 oz bag of butterscotch chips
For the glaze:
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/8 cup milk
- 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
For the cookies:
- Preheat oven to 350.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the butter and sugars until creamy.
- Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix well.
- In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Slowly mix into the butter and sugar mixture.
- Add the oats and butterscotch chips and mix until combined.
- Place dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool for 1 minute on the cookie sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
For the glaze:
- In a saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in the brown sugar and bring to a boil.
- Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the milk and return to a boil.
- Remove from the heat and let cool to lukewarm. Slowly add in the powdered sugar and mix until smooth. If it is too runny, you can add more powdered sugar. If it's too thick, add a little water.
- Spread the glaze in a thin layer on each cookie and let the glaze harden before serving.

What are your plans for Thanksgiving? Both my husband and my families are notorious for last minute plans, so ask me again the day before 🙂 I know I’ll be eating turkey, sweet potato casserole, and pecan pie while watching the parade and football.
What is one thing you are wishing for this Christmas? Some hunter wellies are at the top of my wish list, but really as long as my family is together under 1 roof and my mom makes cheesecake it’ll be a good Christmas.
