Butterscotch Pudding Cookies

DSC_1046x900Mmmmm butterscotch. Butterscotch is amazing, right? The butterscotch dilly bars are the best. Those little butterscotch disk candies are addicting. And let’s be real, I could (and do) eat butterscotch morsels right out of the bag. These cookies were great because they were soft (thanks, pudding!), butterscotch-y, and a little salty — thanks to the much-needed addition of a sea salt.

And before someone comments (because I know it’ll happen), I will say this: these are SWEET cookies. That is the very nature of butterscotch, ladies and gents. So if SWEETNESS isn’t your jam, move on to a different cookie. :)
