Jumbo Cinnamon Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookie

Sometimes I just want one cookie.  My sweet tooth has a tendency to get out of control and the only way to keep it from taking over is to have a cookie.  So what’s the problem?  Most recipes make two or three dozen and sometimes my self control isn’t in the place where it can handle a whole recipe.

Jenny solved my problem when she posted this jumbo chocolate chip cookie (for one!)  I like chocolate chip cookies, don’t get me wrong but my heart belongs to oatmeal cookies, especially oatmeal with butterscotch chips.  Nothing is better than a chewy oatmeal cookie with lots of cinnamon and butterscotch.

Who could resist this dough? (Not me!)

Jumbo Cinnamon Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookie

Yield: 1 jumbo cookie (or 4 small ones)

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 14 minutes

Sweet jumbo oatmeal cookie...for one!


2 Tbs. butter, softened to room temperature
2 Tbs. granulated sugars
2 Tbs. packed brown sugar
2 Tbs. beaten egg
1/4 tsp. vanilla
4 Tbs. flour
4 Tbs. old-fashioned oats
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 Tbs. butterscotch chips
2 Tbs. cinnamon chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a small cookie sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir the butter and sugars together until creamed. Add the egg and vanilla and mix.

Stir in flour, oats, baking soda, salt and cinnamon and stir until fully incorporated. Add in butterscotch chips and cinnamon chips and stir.

Place the dough in the center of the prepared cookie sheet and bake for 13-15 minutes, until the edges are browned.

Cool completely on a wire rack.

    Holy cow. I need a couple of these. I just love the combination of butterscotch and oatmeal. So amazing! 🙂

    I’m obsessed with butterscotch at the moment but hadn’t thought of combining it with oatmeal – it sounds like a match made in heaven!

    YES! I would eat that entire cookie in one bite. Ok, maybe I give myself too much credit. TWO bites. In any case, love the combination of butterscotch and oatmeal. Great job, Cassie..this is a keeper!!:)

    hi Cassie

    I would have had to make a double batch of those cookies, because I would have eaten half the dough while it was raw! Those cookies look amazing!

    Oatmeal and butterscotch all whipped up in one big delicious cookie; delicious! I’ll take 2 with a tall glass of milk!

    I like that you made a giant oatmeal cookie with Butterscotch in it, yumm! I made her peanut butter cookie for one and it was definitely the perfect single serving cookie for me – gigantic! I totally agree about the problem of making an entire batch of cookies. I solved that by freezing most of the dough, preformed into balls and then pop them into the oven whenever I want some!

      That is a fantastic idea, thanks for sharing!

    this looks incredible!! I baked Picky Palate’s peanut butter jumbo cookie last month and it was to die for! I have a soft spot for oatmeal cookies, so I will most definitely be baking this! I might replace some of those chips for raisins because I love oatmeal raisin cookies. 🙂

    YES! Brilliant! Love the cookie for one idea! And butterscotch is my fave too! 🙂

    Michelle — January 13, 2012 @ 12:02 pm

    Perfect portioning! I’m left to my own devices often and I don’t need a whole batch of cookies! I’m also kind of partial to the oatmeal butterscotch combo! That’s what I was used to as a kid. Taking it up a notch with cinnamon chips is brilliant!

    Jackie @ Domestic Fits — January 13, 2012 @ 12:40 pm

    I love this! Just want one. That solves so many problems in my life 🙂 I also like a oatmeal cookie that doesn’t rely on raisins.

    Ok – I need to tell you the weakness I have for oatmeal cookies. I would eat that one while 2 more batches are being made!! 🙂

    Love does not even begin to describe my feelings of affection for this cookie. I love desserts made for one!! (And oatmeal cookies and I…we’re kinda bffs.) 🙂

    Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust — January 13, 2012 @ 9:42 pm

    Super awesome! I know how you feel – I bake cookies…and then I eat them all. This is a perfect way to do that and not feel guilty!

    Ann — January 13, 2012 @ 10:11 pm

    That’s perfect! I have the EXACT same problem with cookies…which is why I don’t make them that often!

    Anne@FromMySweetHeart — January 13, 2012 @ 11:08 pm

    Cassie….how did that dough ever make it to the oven!!! What a great idea to make one big cookie instead of a couple of dozen little ones. Perfect idea and I prefer oatmeal over chocolate chip any day! : )

    Jumbo cookies (baked and just the dough) are totally irresistible in my world! I love the butterscotch and oatmeal combination here. PS: I have a giveaway going on that I think you’ll be in to!

    Ramona — January 14, 2012 @ 8:26 am

    Cassie, that cookie looks so good, I would still want two! 🙂 I love the combination of flavors. I’m a little in love with oatmeal for baking these days, so I’m totally with you on the dough. Have a great weekend!! ~ Ramona

    Yudith @ Blissfully Delicious — January 14, 2012 @ 8:26 pm

    So funny that I was going to make these today – but realized we had no oatmeal at home. And it’s too cold to go outside. I am glad you posted this! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Jen at The Three Little Piglets — January 14, 2012 @ 9:30 pm

    For baked cookies I’ll take chocolate chip any day, but eating dough straight it has to be oatmeal!

    I see cookie posts often, but I love this one – looks like a perfect texture that I would enjoy. I love Erin’s advice above. I didn’t think about freezing them. Such a great idea. I known I will have no control once they are baked… how could I resist.. =P Love this recipe!

    I love you. I think chocolate chip is okay, but oatmeal cookies are my very favorite, and this is perfect!

    Heather — April 7, 2014 @ 6:49 pm

    Just made a double batch of these. It made 16 big cookies (minus the cookie dough that may have fallen into my mouth before reaching the pan…). Boy did they expand when cooked (only 10 minutes to bake)! lol Next time I’ll space them out more. Absolutely dee-lish!!!! Thanks!

    Jeanette — April 18, 2014 @ 1:18 am

    Oh, my aching tummy. This was good, and I unfortunately took it literally as a single serve cookie. I couldn’t stop eating ’till I ate over 1/2 of it. No willpower=tummy ache. Thanks for the good recipe but it needs a warning for people who have eyes bigger than their stomachs like me. LOL!
