"I love these cookies! They are so easy to make and taste delicious! Be sure not to overbake, as they are more shortbread-like and will continue to firm up while cooling. I love the idea of adding the Eng. toffee bits to the batter--can't wait to try that next! :)"

"I made this recipe twice so far & substituted pistachio pudding mix (Instant) the first time and substituted semi-sweet chocolate chips for the nuts! I think adding 1/2 tsp. salt is a help for leavening purposes! I also added 1 Tbsp. corn syrup (Light) & 1 tsp. of vanilla extract to make the dough more pliable! Today I used the butterscotch pudding mix (Instant) & used a package of English Toffee Bits instead of the nuts! I'd prepared these cookies again 7/18/14 & instead of butterscotch pudding, I used a 4.2-oz. package of Oreo Cookies & Creme Instant Pudding mix and I used 1 cup of Nestle's Springtime colored baking chips: Chocolate, pink & yellow + about 1/2 cup Reese's peanut butter pieces! It made for a colorful cookie! delowenstein"

"Wasn't sure about these at first, but let them cool (usually I like cookies still warm) and they were perfect. I pressed them down with a buttered, sugared glass for just a touch more sweetness. I will make again with other flavors of pudding."

"I have a hard time giving this recipe even one star. I baked part of the batch of cookies and ended up throwing out the baked and uncooked dough. I have never tasted anything so bland. You would think the pudding would add flavor to this cookie, but what a disappointment!"

"This recipe Has become a family favorite! A quick one to make AND memorize! For those who love a shortbread-type cookie, these are perfect! They are tender and 100% better than any of the store-bought varieties. Have made many times... My teen daughter loves to make and eat them, too :)"

"These cookies had absolutely no flavor. I was expecting to get some butterscotch flavor from the pudding, but not so. They are just very bland little cookies."

"Because I didn't have butterscotch pudding, I used vanilla, instead. We thought it tasted great, but I haven't tried the butterscotch pudding so I can't compare the two.
