Honey Oatmeal Drops

These Honey Oatmeal Drops are just like the scotchies you remember, but even softer and baked with the perfect amount of honey.




  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup Sue Bee® honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 bag butterscotch chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Cream together sugar, brown sugar, and butter in a separate bowl. Add eggs one at a time. Stir in honey and vanilla.
  • Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Stir in the old fashioned oats, then add the butterscotch chips.
  • Drop heaping teaspoons of batter on parchment-lined cookie sheet 1-2 inches apart.
