Caramel Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

One of my favorite cookies are my Mom’s Oatmeal Scotchies!  I love the chewy, soft texture of oatmeal cookies.  I thought the only way to make them any better were to add bits of caramel!  These may be my family’s new favorite cookie!

Serves: 5 dozen cookies

  1. SO these look D-I-V-I-N-E...I am totally not a wiz in the kitchen but for the most part can make my way through a baking recipe...that being said, I have a question (anyone that could respond would just be a doll):

    I have about 30 of the square caramels left over from Halloween. Any thoughts on how I could unwrap these and maybe slice them to add to the mixture? Would that even work?

    I made these last night (a little baking therapy). I made a half-recipe version. I used salted carmel chips instead of the carmel bits and the turned out wonderfully! I only made half-recipe so I wouldn't have shop many cookies in the house. I'm diabetic, but I have a mad sweet tooth & when my grands get here for spring break, I know they'll disappear quickly! LOL! If I add pecans or walnuts, I won't eat them at all. (I don't like nuts in my food. Never have since I was a kid).
