If you haven’t tried pudding cookies yet, you are missing out. The pudding makes the cookies so soft and delicious.
These cookies are the perfect combination of butterscotch and chocolate. I ate way too many of these. They are so addicting.
My husband loves dipping these bad boys in milk, but I prefer them warm, right out of the oven, with a scoop of ice cream.
If you have never tried butterscotch chips in your cookies, you need to give it a try. It is so delicious.
The secret to making the perfect cookies:
Did you know there is a secret to making the perfect cookies every time? The secret is in the butter texture.
This recipe calls for softened butter. This does not mean warm, or microwaved, or melted. Softened butter is butter that has sat at room temperature and is at it’s normal state.
It should be extremely soft, but definitely not melted.
If your butter is melted, your cookie dough is going to be way too soft, and you will have to add more flour, making your cookies dry and tasting like flour.
The pudding in these cookies also makes the cookies extremely soft. You need to try them.
Do these cookies freeze well?
I have a strange obsession with frozen cookies. I usually don’t have any leftover to freeze, because I love eating cookies as soon as they come out of the oven (I even take the risk of getting a burnt tongue from the melted chocolate), but frozen cookies are so yummy.
These cookies freeze extremely well. You can eat them slightly frozen, or freeze them or up to a month.
To thaw them, you can microwave them, but I usually take mine out of the freezer, 24 hours before serving them, and they are perfect and chewy.
