Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Both old-fashioned and quick-cooking oats are whole oats that have been steamed and rolled. Because the quick-cooking variety is cut into small pieces before steaming, it gives baked goods a softer texture.
We like using butterscotch chips in these yummy cookies, but you can try making them with chocolate chips instead.
