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!

    Hey! These look great but I have one problem: I only have cook and serve butterscotch pudding mix (not instant) and since I live expat I can’t buy any at the store. Do you think it would work the same with the cook and serve, or not?

    Where can you find butterscotch instant pudding? I can only find sugar free instant and cook and serve butterscotch pudding :(

    This may sound like a dumb question but I’m wondering about the pudding mix. Do you just add the dry mix or do you make the pudding mix and then add it?

    Thank you so much for this recipe! I too, am not usually a fan of butterscotch, but this pregnancy, has me craving it, and these were perfect! I actually used 2 1oz packages of the dry pudding mix, and then one butterscotch pudding cup, and they turned out great! They don’t look exactly like yours, instead more rounded, but AMAZING!

    I cannot find instant butterscotch pudding, only regular. Can you use that or no?

    I made this recipe when I came across it last year for Thanksgiving. All of my family LOVED it!! I just made them again today and everyone was so excited to be able to eat them again. lol I stand by this recipe so much that I featured your blog, recipe, and site in my blog’s post for today. I hope that you might swing by and check it out. I hope that I represented you well! I now add pudding to all my cookies!! Thanks again.

    Hello! So I just made these tonight (using parchment paper on top of my beloved Wilton baking sheets) and the flavor was AMAZING! However, the first tray came out like lumps and the tops of the cookies didn’t bake all the way. I flattened all the cookies after that before baking them and they baked completely, but they still look far different from yours. Do you use the Silpat baking mat you mention in the recipe? I was looking into them and a lot of reviewers said that the baking mats made their cookies very flat and “professional looking” (a few people disliked this, but most thought it was an advantage). I am a novice baker and would appreciate any advice! Also your brown butter salted caramel snickerdoodles helped me gain mucho points with family and friends this Christmas! Every recipe I’ve read on here has been fantastic!

      I always use Silpat baking mats when I bake cookies. I like them!

    Hello! I tried to post a comment last week but it seems that it mysteriously disappeared? I made these cookies and the flavor was AMAZING but my cookies turned out like little balls instead of cookies. After the first tray, I flattened the cookies down before baking them but they didn’t seem to flatten at all during baking. I used parchment paper over Wilson baking sheets (which are fairly new, but not brand new). Did you use the Silpat baking mat for these? I am very interested in buying one but upset that I will have to buy new baking sheets to use it because the sizes don’t match my current set of baking sheets. Thanks!

    Also I consider myself a novice baker, so any and all advice is welcome! :)

    Well whoops! Just saw my comment did post and you replied to it. Thank you! Sorry for the excessive number of comments!

    This is the second pudding cookie of Maria’s I have tried. Both times, the dough to filler ratio was off- too many chips in this recipe to hold them together. I’ll have to remember thar for next time, but they taste great!

    These cookies are AWESOME!!! I make them for everything and everyone LOVES them..even my husband that doesn’t like butterscotch. I’m currently out of butter, so I’m going to try them with margarine tonight. Fingers crossed they turn out as well!

    What would be a good substitute for the eggs or can it be substituted?
