Butterscotch Pudding Triple Chip Cookies

I am on a pudding cookie kick. I recently made Banana Pudding Cookies and fell in love. I was tempted to make them again, but you know I always love creating new cookie recipes. So instead, I made Butterscotch Pudding Triple Chip Cookies.

I am usually not the hugest butterscotch fan. I like the flavor, but it isn’t my favorite. Well, these cookies are my favorite. Maybe top 10 cookie of all time! Wow, did I just type that? Don’t quote me because I don’t want my other cookies’ feelings to get hurt, but these Butterscotch Pudding Triple Chip Cookies are high up there on the list. I love them!

The butterscotch pudding adds the perfect flavor to these cookies. My chocolate drawer was getting too full, I couldn’t shut it, so I decided to do some cleaning and throw in chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and butterscotch chips. The triple threat of chips makes these cookies insanely good! Don’t hold back, make sure you add in the triple threat of chips!

The cookies are fantastic right out of the oven. I never can wait for cookies to cool. I mean, who really does wait for a cookie to cool before eating? If you have the willpower, please send me your secret. I enjoyed a few fresh cookies and put the rest of the cookies away. Out of sight, out of mind. Yeah, that never really works for me when cookies are involved, but I try:)

We did manage to save some cookies and you know what? They are just as good a few days later. I am telling you that butterscotch pudding in the cookie dough is money! It keeps the cookies super soft. These cookies are pretty much perfect. They are great for any occasion too-back to school, birthdays, bake sales, or every day dessert!

Make these cookies. Like right now. I still see you sitting there. GO! These Butterscotch Pudding Triple Chip Cookies are screaming your name!

Butterscotch Pudding Triple Chip Cookies

Yield: 3 dozen cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Super soft butterscotch cookies with chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and butterscotch chips.


1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 (3.4 oz) package butterscotch instant pudding mix
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose Gold Medal flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat and set aside.

2. Using a mixer, beat together butter and sugars until creamy. Add in butterscotch pudding mix, eggs, and vanilla extract. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and butterscotch chips.

3. Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, or until slightly golden around the edges and set. Remove cookies from oven and let cool on baking sheet for two minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely.

Note-these cookies will stay fresh for days in an air-tight container, thanks to the pudding! Enjoy!

    I love the pudding cookie kick you’ve been on and butterscotch is a fave flavor of mine, right along with white choc & semi sweet!

    I wish we had butterscotch chips here… :(

  3. Natasha — September 5, 2012 @ 6:09 am

    These look fantastic, and so chewy! Love the idea of putting butterscotch pudding in there, too :-)

  4. sally @ sallys baking addiction — September 5, 2012 @ 6:26 am

    Between these and the banana pudding cookies… I don’t know which to make first Maria! Butterscotch and Banana flavors are my favorites.. I’d take them over chocolate anyway! Butterscotch and white (and semi sweet) chocolate are such a great combination!

  5. Kerry @ Kerry Cooks — September 5, 2012 @ 6:37 am

    These look so gorgeous – great photography Maria!

  6. Oh my gosh, these look amazing!!! I haven’t had butterscotch since I was a kid.

  7. Aimee @ ShugarySweets — September 5, 2012 @ 7:14 am

    Oooh these look good. I LOVE butterscotch cookies! And I’m a new believer in the pudding too, what a difference it makes in keeping them soft for DAYS!

  8. Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar — September 5, 2012 @ 7:17 am

  11. Brian @ A Thought For Food — September 5, 2012 @ 8:18 am

    Ok… these look too freakin’ awesome! You don’t see butterscotch (a favorite of mine) used very often, so I’m thrilled to see these chips in there!

  12. Jenna — September 5, 2012 @ 8:20 am

    These look great!

  13. Pooja Arora — September 5, 2012 @ 8:33 am

    When you posted banana pudding cookies, I instantly wanted to make a version with white chocolate pudding mix. I have a stash in the cupboard just waiting for something like this!

  16. Ashley — September 5, 2012 @ 9:35 am

    Butterscotch pudding used to be my favorite flavor and now you put that into a cookie? I don’t even know what to say!! :)

  17. Cindy Ferguson — September 5, 2012 @ 9:41 am

    I still have to make one of your pudding cookies! I’ve got a pudding flavor in mind already. ^_^

  20. Erica — September 5, 2012 @ 9:57 am

    Fun! I need to pick up pudding- rocks in cakes and muffins AND cookies! All the chips make these look fall festive

  21. Cookbook Queen — September 5, 2012 @ 9:57 am

    Butterscotch is one of my all time favorite flavors. Not even kidding.

    (in related news, I have the palate of a grandmother. I also love rice pudding, any hard candies, and lemon meringue pie)

    I am definitely making these, pudding cookies are the best!!

  22. Lindsey @ Family Food Finds — September 5, 2012 @ 10:00 am

    Wow! I love the way the multiple colors of the chips make the cookies look so festive! Going to make these this fall for sure.

  23. bridget {bake at 350} — September 5, 2012 @ 10:02 am

    maybe top 10 of all time!!! that’s really saying something! must try!!!

  24. Minnie@thelady8home — September 5, 2012 @ 11:02 am

    Butterscotch cookies!! Yummmm…….I need one right now, as I sip my warm English breakfast. Drooool!

  25. JulieD — September 5, 2012 @ 11:40 am

    I’m totally making these soon!! I love butterscotch…and if you don’t like them that much and these cookies are in your top 10 then I must make them!!

  26. Melissa @ Treats With a Twist — September 5, 2012 @ 11:51 am

    Perfect solution. You know, I don’t really like butterscotch all that much either and I’ve had this bag of butterscotch chips staring at me (I bought them on one of “those” shopping trips where you’re convinced in your head that you like something and that it sounds great…then you get home, pop a couple in your mouth…yup, still don’t really like those all that much). I’ll have to give this a whirl!

  27. Mercedes — September 5, 2012 @ 11:53 am

    I love butterscotch flavor and I’m sure the pudding just makes these cookies so extra soft, just the way I like them!

  28. Brenda @ a farmgirl's dabbles — September 5, 2012 @ 1:03 pm

    Butterscotch is usually not at the top of my list, either. But I have found that I like the chips in cookies, too. These sound like another must-try!

  29. Sarah Taylor — September 5, 2012 @ 1:25 pm

    OH YUMMY!! I wonder if these would work if you use pudding that is already made??? there is a sale at the store.. $0.79 for a 4 pack of butterscotch pudding!! and I have all the other ingredients except for all of the “chips” :)

    • Two Peas replied: — September 6th, 2012 @ 11:43 pm

      I haven’t tried it with already made pudding, just the mix.

  30. natalie@thesweetslife — September 5, 2012 @ 1:47 pm

    I absolutely love what pudding mix does to cookies but I’ve only tried vanilla–need to experiment with other flavors (esp bc i LOVE butterscotch!) :)

  31. Elizabeth@ Food Ramblings — September 5, 2012 @ 1:49 pm

    Love the combo of “chips”– butterscotch is becoming a new fav flavor for me!

  32. Mary @ Bake Break! — September 5, 2012 @ 2:15 pm

    Everyone keeps going on about how delicious pudding cookies are – perhaps I’ll have to give these a go! Beautiful pictures, as always!

  33. Ayris — September 5, 2012 @ 2:26 pm

    Looks great!! Can you do a recipe using lemon pudding mix in a cookie? I wanted to make your banana pudding cookies but bought lemon cookie mix instead.

    Thank you :)

    • Two Peas replied: — September 6th, 2012 @ 11:43 pm

      I will try to do a lemon cookies soon:)

  34. AnnaG — September 5, 2012 @ 3:03 pm

    ummm … you have a CHOCOLATE drawer? That’s really awesome! :)

  35. Kimberly — September 5, 2012 @ 3:11 pm

    I made the banana cookies the other day, and just made these. Both are super good. Everyone who tries them loves ’em! Yum!

  36. I can not wait to make these!! My husband loves butterscotch, and I love chocolate, so these will go over so well!

  37. Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes — September 5, 2012 @ 4:16 pm

    Butterscotch is one of my faves…never thought to use the butterscotch pudding in cookies!

  38. Ann P. — September 5, 2012 @ 4:59 pm

    AWESOMEeee! I love butterscotch and chocolate :)

  39. Madeleine @ Teenie Baker — September 5, 2012 @ 5:14 pm

    You have a CHOCOLATE drawer?! Wow, sounds great! These look fantastic – I’ve never tried pudding cookies before!
