It’s no secret I am a cookie addict. I could be very happy baking cookies every single day, well I practically do, lol!

If you haven’t added instant pudding to your cookies before, just wait until you try it. Such an awesome texture! Oodles of chocolate chunks and butterscotch chips, you can’t possibly go wrong with that.

Hope you enjoy another great cookie recipe!

    I’ve never used pudding in cookies although I’ve seen recipes which call for it. These cookies look absolutely delicious. I need to try them asap.

    I am a soft cookie lover to the core (while my husband prefers crispy) so that means I’m keeping a batch of these butterscotch beauties all to myself! 🙂

    These cookies are the best! The first time we made them with semi-sweet mini chips instead of the butterscotch. So good. We’ve made them several times, and our current batch is the best: we used chocolate pudding, semi-sweet mini chips instead of the butterscotch – and English Toffee bits (I used Heath). Each version we make is – well, we think it’s the best cookie ever! And the cookie dough is to die for! I love all your recipes, Jenny!

    […] cookies from Picky Palate. Butterscotch is my favorite. In fact, oatmeal scotchies are my favorite type of cookies for that […]
