Oatmeal Butterscotch Bars
This bake-sale favorite combines oatmeal cookie dough with a bag of butterscotch chips. We found these versions far too sweet, and we wanted a chewier, less crumbly texture.
Why This Recipe Works
Most recipes for this bake-sale favorite combine oatmeal cookie dough with a bag of butterscotch chips. We wanted a chewier, less crumbly version that wasn’t so sweet. To achieve this, we used less sugar than most oatmeal butterscotch bars recipes, and melted the butter (instead of creaming it) to produce a chewy texture.
