Delicious and so easy. I made these for my Mom so she could freeze them and have them on hand for company. I added instant Vanilla pudding as my grocery store didn't have Butterscotch; so added butterscotch chips. Thank you, Trisha, for sharing this recipe.

I substituted coconut cream pudding mix for the butterscotch and added 1 cup of white chocolate chips. Amazing!!!

I have mixed feelings about these cookies - they were quick to put together and satisfied the initial craving, but weren't really drop-dead delicious and the next day they just tasted crumbly and like 'package mix'. Don't think I would make them again.

OMG! These cookies just melt in your mouth!! Please try them!! For the butter portion---you must go by the markings on the butter stick.... Do not use just a measuring cup....... That might be why some of the ladies here didn't have too much luck. But I made a double batch when I made these.

I was excited to try these because I love butterscotch. Super easy to make the cookie dough - BUT, I was so disappointed with the end product. This recipe definitely needs something. It has a butterscotch taste, but I agree with the reviewer that said it was like having a mouthful of dry pancake mix. This recipe will be going in the trash.

I followed the recipe just as it stated and while the cookies were soft and chewy, they had no flavor and a bad after taste. Definitely a fail and I won't be making these again.

I truly wish I had read ALL of the reviews before I mixed a double batch of these cookies. I took one bite and felt like I had a mouthful of pancake mix. I'm truly glad I didn't waste my box of pumpkin spice instant pudding mix.

Although the photo of these cookies appears as if these are a crunchy buttery cookie mine were different, but very very good. I am camping and only have access to a countertop oven. I didn't have a small enough cookie sheet to bake as directed so I used a mini muffin pan. I also substitued low fat Bisquick mix and used mini chocolate chips instead of the pecans. I mixed the batter/dough the day before baking (kept it in the fridge) until ready to bake. I rolled into one inch balls and placed in the muffin tin. I baked at 350 for 13 minutes. The tops cracked beautifully and the texture was a muffin, not a cookie. But still awesome. i will be interested to find the Next time I make these (at home) with the cookie sheet if they are a buttery crispy cookie as the photo appears. For those that have made this cookie on the cookie sheets are they a crunchy cookie with a buttery crumb or a soft cake like cookie? Thanks!

Like a lot of people said,the recipe is so easy.I didn't have butterscotch pudding so I used vanilla and chopped some toasted hazelnuts and also used some mini chocolate chips to equal 1/2 cup.It was great.I am going to try it next time with all the ingredients the way the recipe reads.Can't understand anyone who rated it poorly.
