Hazelnut Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

These indulgent cookies came to mind when I was baking up these Ultimate Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.  I couldn’t resist changing them up with tantalizing hazelnut truffles and white chocolate, butterscotch and dark chocolate chips.  The hazelnut truffles on top just take these to another yummy dimension!

I think I just fell in love again.

Hazelnut Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

Taking old-fashioned desserts, like oatmeal cookies and giving them a modern holiday-ish spin is easy and fun to do.

Besides, what could be more holiday-ish than truffles and cookies together?

Truffle Talk

Mind you, you could add any flavor of truffle on top, change the chocolate chips out, add dried fruit, toffee, sprinkles, a different chocolate bar on top, toffee chips, candies…The list could go on…I hope I’m not boring you with my add-in addiction ideas.  Get creative and change it up for every holiday, because these cookies are are pretty big deal. Thick and chewy delish!

It isn’t imperative you absolutely have to the truffles or you can’t make these cookies because you don’t have truffles in the house.  You could easily add a chunk of your favorite candy bar on top!  However, they are just as delicious without the truffles.

These would be wonderful to give your husband, best friend, family, aunt or uncle, your kids and neighbors!  These cookies reflect love and THEY will LOVE it. 🙂

How to Make Hazelnut Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

Special Note: These cookies are 1/4 cup cookies, not 1 heaping tablespoon cookies, although it’s up to you how big or small you want to make them.  You will have to reduce your baking time if you make them smaller and keep the truffle size in mind when you are deciding what size you want your cookies.  If the truffle is bigger than the cookie, it could get messy.

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare 2 baking sheets lining with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together cold butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition and then mix in your vanilla.
  3. Add flour, oats, cornstarch, baking soda, salt and stir until combined. Stir in chips.
  4. Scoop dough out using ¼ cup using a cookie scoop and place 6 on a baking tray. 
  5. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown on the top. 
  6. Take baking sheet of cookies out of oven and and place chocolate on top by placing in oven for 15-45 seconds or however long it takes to get the chocolate to start melting, then take out of oven. It’s ok if the chocolate melts down the cookie a bit. I got some that had chocolate on the bottom, YUM!
  7. Let them rest for at least 10-minutes to set before transferring to a baking wire rack. 
  8. Indulge!
