{Softest Ever} Butterscotch Cookies

The softest and chewiest butterscotch cookies, sweetened with butterscotch pudding and chips. The absolute best!

{Softest Ever} Butterscotch Cookies

So, our friends gave us four (maybe five?) bags of butterscotch chips.

Basically, it felt like my birthday.

I can never, ever have enough baking chips. Fact.

{Softest Ever} Butterscotch Cookies

And then I got home and thought. What the heck do I use four (maybe five?) bags of butterscotch chips for?

Instantly about five million (give or take a couple) ideas came into my head. So excited.

And then when I started to bake, all I wanted to make were cookies.

{Softest Ever} Butterscotch CookiesI know. Not super original.

But they kind of are. Super original I mean.

These cookies are the softest, lightest, CHEWIEST cookies ever. They are BURSTing with butterscotch flavor and pretty much melt in your mouth.

Or maybe I was just so excited, I forgot to chew.

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, at room temperature (not melted!)
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup butterscotch pudding mix, dry
  • 1 and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cream together the butter and both sugars until creamy or about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cornstarch, and salt. Stir and then slowly combine the dry and wet ingredients.
  5. Fold in the butterscotch chips.
  6. Using a cookie scoop, scoop large bits of dough onto a cookie sheet (refer to picture #2).
  7. Bake for about 8-10 minutes. By slightly under-baking the cookies, they will remain very soft and chewy. So pull them out slightly under-baked and allow to cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
