This scrumptious batch of Triple Threat Oatmeal Cookies is full of semi-sweet chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and butterscotch chips!

Some of my loyal readers may remember my infatuation with soft, chewy oatmeal cookie recipes. I’ve made them plain, with butterscotch chips, with chocolate chips, and loaded with chips, dried fruit, and nuts.

I was lucky enough to be invited to join some dear friends down in West Palm Beach, Florida, for a respite from our Midwest winter weather. Since I could leave all my warm weather duds at home, I had room in my suitcase for a few cookies.

Tips for Making Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Since we were on vacation, a cookie or two mid-day was a no-brainer. A triple dose of baking chips made for a blissful combination with each bite tasting a little different from the one before. Feel free to use all of one variety or make up your own mixture.

I find that Guittard butterscotch chips have a less artificial taste than some of their competitors, but they can be difficult to locate. The base for these cookies is marvelous, so you may elect to add a cup of raisins or plain ol’ chocolate chips.

Use a medium cookie scoop to dish out consistent sized balls of cookie dough. They will bake more evenly when they’re the same size.

No matter how you shake up this recipe for triple threat oatmeal cookies, I think you’ll have trouble not going back for seconds.

Friends in West Palm Beach 2017

Our best meal in the Palm Beach area was at Cafe Boulud. Every single dish got rave reviews. My crab cake, Shelli’s squash soup, and Susie’s Key lime pie with pink grapefruit sorbet were exquisite (those were the dishes I sampled)!

  16. By oatmeal, do you use quick-cooking oats or rolled (old-fashioned) oats? Thank you!

  17. My intention would be to savor these slowly but that would probably last just through the first bite.
