Butterscotch Oatmeal M&M Cookies

I am on a cookie kick lately!  Earlier this week, I made butterscotch oatmeal M&M cookies.  This is a very chewy cookie with only a hint of butterscotch.  There is certainly a time for fancy schmancy treats, but if you are just looking for something plain and simple or an afternoon snack, this is the cookie for you!  I used my muffin top pan again, but they could be made into plain old drop cookies too. 

I had some funky white and green M&M's in my pantry, so I figured it would be very appropriate with St. Patty's Day coming up!

Butterscotch Oatmeal M&M Cookies

2 sticks softened butter
3/4 Cup granulated sugar
3/4 Cup packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 Tablespoons butterscotch ice cream topping
2 Cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 Cups oatmeal, I used Coach’s Oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 Cups chocolate chips
1 Cup M&M’s
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  In stand mixer beat butter and sugars until well combined.  Beat in eggs,  vanilla and butterscotch topping until well combined.
In large bowl mix the flour, oats, baking soda and salt.  Slowly add to wet ingredients along with the chocolate chips until just combined.
Scoop about 1/4 Cup dough into muffin top pans that have been sprayed with cooking spray.  Flatten with palm of your hand then top with 5-7 M&M’s per cookie.  Bake for 11-13 minutes or until cooked through and golden around edges.  Remove from oven and loosen edges of cookies while warm so they will be easy to remove.  Let cool for 5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
