Butterscotch Pudding Cookies Recipe


Welcome to the Crazy Christmas event! If you’re new here you may want to subscribe or join us on facebook. Welcome Inside BruCrew Life!!


Hi, Naptime fans. Jocelyn from Inside BruCrew Life with you today. I am super thrilled to be here on Jamielyn’s cute blog sharing one of my cookies for the Crazy Christmas Event. She has been such a great inspiration to me as I work to grow my blog.

Every year my family always makes about 10 different kinds of cookies each December over a period of 2-3 days. Each of my kids gets to pick their absolute favorite, and then they do all the work for their cookie. It has been so much fun as they get older to see them actually doing everything from start to finish on the recipe. This year I am thinking that I will only need to be in the kitchen for those random questions they have when baking and to keep them company. After we finish baking all those cookies, we put together plates of cookies & candy and deliver them to our friends and neighbors. I am really hoping my kids remember this fun baking tradition that we have done with them each year.


Lately I have been addicted to making different pudding cookies. The pudding mix in the batter keeps the cookies soft, even days later. I have been buying all the different pudding mixes and trying a new one each week. When I bought the butterscotch pudding, I knew I wanted something else to pair with it since butterscotch can be overly sweet. I grabbed a bag of pretzels thinking that the salt from those would balance out the sweetness. I can honestly say these cookies did not last very long at all in our house. Something about the sweet and salty gets me every single time.

I have enjoyed being here sharing a fun cookie and tradition with you. Happy Holidays!

  1. Wow! These look delicious!

  2. I love Jocelyn and her site, and I LOVE her pudding cookie recipe! It’s one of the best on the web I’ve found, and I’m loyal to it 100%! This butterscotch version looks insanely good!

  3. I was wondering if you think subbing nuts for the pretzles or one typ of chips would work just as well? I love nuts in my cookies. If so what type do you think for these cookies? I am thinking walnuts?

  4. The recipe looks delicious, but I did not see where the butterscotch pudding comes to play… I am a lover of butterscotch pudding, and I really want to try the recipe.

  5. Looks divine… I didn’t see where you add the butterscotch pudding!!! I would love to make these for the holidays!

  6. I just made these tonight — this is an amazing recipe! I added the pudding mix after I added the dry ingredients to the butter mixture (so it was in order as it was listed). I used pretzels — and I love the saltiness (not a big fan of nuts in cookies). My kids love these — will definitely make again, and again, and again :o)

  7. These look amazing! Wondering how many cookies it makes?

  8. At what temperature do you bake the Double Chocolate Pudding Cookies and when you put “spponful” what is an approximate size or amount, i.e. Teaspoon, Tablespoon.
