Butterscoth Marshmallow Pudding Cookies

I don't know how I haven't heard of a pudding cookie before this week but I haven't.  When I saw these on Chef in Training I just knew I needed to try them.  These cookies were awesome.  I'm really into butterscotch right now and have been adding it into everything.  I really liked how the tops of the marshmallows in this started to brown like a s'mores.   These were really good.  We are undecided in my house though if these are better than my normal chocolate chip cookies or not.  They are both awesome and I think I'll have to make another batch to help me decide!

Butterscotch Marshmallow Pudding Cookies

3/4 c. shortening
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 (3.4 oz) package instant chocolate pudding
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt 
6 oz. butterscotch chips
1 c. mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Stir together flour, salt and baking soda and set aside.
In a large bowl cream shortening and sugars together. Add in pudding package and beat until well blended. Then add eggs and vanilla and mix until smooth.
Cookies getting the "thumbs up"!
Slowly add flour mixture until combined.  Roll into 1" balls and place on greased baking sheet.  Bake for 8-12 minutes.

  1. great recipe (I am always drawn to shortening recipes... why has this been replaced in modern recipes???) Love the combination!

  2. They look so tasty! I'd give them a thumb up, too, or maybe my both thumbs up :D

  3. Yum! I love this recipe. Please come over to Cast Party Wednesday tomorrow and share this and any other of your recipes with us.
