Perfectly Puffy Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Cookies

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time20 mins
Servings: 3 1/2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter , at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup butter flavored Crisco stick
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 (3.4 oz) package butterscotch instant pudding mix
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp baking soda*
  • 3 to 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the sugars, butter and Crisco until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then the vanilla extract. Add pudding mix; stir until incorporated.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together 1 cup of the flour with the baking soda and salt. Blend into the egg mixture.
  • Add additional flour 1/2 to 1 cup at a time until reaching desired consistency. I use a total of 3 to 3 1/2 cups flour, depending on the humidity level of the day.
  • Fold in chocolate chips and butterscotch chips.
  • Drop spoonfuls of dough on cookie sheet. (To achieve a more round, cleaner look, roll the balls of cookie dough in your hand instead of just dropping on the cookie sheet.) Bake exactly 10 minutes, rotating cookie sheets halfway through. The cookies may not look done, but that is the trick to keeping them puffy and soft. Let cookies cool on the cookie sheet on top of wire racks for 5 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets and cool completely on the cooling racks.
  • *Recipe Note: Make sure your baking soda has not been opened over 1 month.
