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 pudding cookies! And I always eat them right out of the oven. Does it mean I have no self control?

  15. Julia — September 6, 2012 @ 2:16 pm

    What a great idea! for now I just have semi-sweet chocolate chips, I need to add white chocolate and butterscotch chips to my shopping list.

  17. Chelsea — September 6, 2012 @ 9:27 pm

    So I was planning on making Martha Stewart’s Butterscotch White Chocolate Chip cookies this weekend, and then I saw this recipe. I wonder what these would taste like with cinnamon chips instead of chocolate ones??

    • Two Peas replied: — September 6th, 2012 @ 11:40 pm

      I love cinnamon chips so I think they would be tasty!

  18. Laurie {Simply Scratch} — September 6, 2012 @ 11:25 pm

      Yay! Glad you liked the cookies!

    When we were little and used to go on road trips, my dad would hide a big bag of Werther Originals under his seat and ration them out to us to keep us quiet…I never think to do Butterscotch anymore, but now you’ve definitely got me craving it! Perhaps some cookie baking will be in order this weekend.

  21. Kevin @ Closet Cooking — September 8, 2012 @ 3:51 pm

    Those cookies are looking really good!

  22. Leah — September 9, 2012 @ 9:21 pm

    These are so amazing … my roommates are fighting over them now. I live in an apartment with a tragically tiny kitchen and a tiny oven that can’t even produce these as fast as they’re being eaten.

    I want to make these, but am only finding My-T-Fine butterscotch pudding mix, which is a 3 oz box. Will that work? Or should I buy two boxes and weigh .4 ounces from second box. Thanks!

    • Two Peas replied: — October 7th, 2012 @ 6:43 pm

      Yes, use the 3 oz. box. That should be fine. Enjoy!

    *Sorry – posted this on the banana pudding cookies recipe – had it open to check out the recipe and posted by accident – can’t figure out how to delete the comment!!*

    So I went to FIVE grocery stores to track down INSTANT butterscotch pudding, and still didn’t find any. I’m home sick today from work (although doc gave me a clean bill of health – just allergies getting me down), and I really wanted to make these. So I ended up buying regular old butterscotch pudding, not instant. Turned out just fine. These are AMAZING!!!! Thanks so much for the recipe. Just discovered your blog recently, and I love everything.

      I deleted for you:) Thanks for commenting here! I am glad you liked the cookies and thanks for following our blog!

  32. Toni — October 15, 2012 @ 3:55 pm

    OH! And I halved the recipe (I’m only one person, and don’t need to consume THAT many cookies at the same time – and I know myself…I totally would if they were around), used the whole box of pudding mix out of laziness, and made 2 dozen, froze the leftover cup. Came out great.

    I just made these and instead of white chocolate chips I added crushed pretzels instead for that sweet/salty mix…sooo delicious! Hubby loved them!!

  39. Margo — December 2, 2012 @ 11:12 am

    I tried these out yesterday and doubled the recipe so I could have 6 dozen for a holiday cookie exchange party. I used “cook and serve” pudding mix, not instant, and it worked fine– they came out very well, nice and moist and a nice combination of flavors. I’m eating leftovers today and I just popped one in the microwave for about 10 seconds and it was perfect :)
