Pudding cookies seem to be one of the new crazes in the blogging world and I’m no exception. I’ve started training for the Flora mini marathon in Dublin, which has begun some intense workouts. I’m trying to alternate running with toning exercises (which is killing me – I stretched muscles that I hadn’t used since high school!) – but one of the upsides is that I’m feeling much less guilty about all the sweets I eat! Accordingly, I’m presenting pudding cookies for you – a nice way to add a bit of flavour and chewiness to any delicious cookie recipe that you have.
I went with simply adding butterscotch pudding to my favourite cookie. While the pudding itself didn’t give too much of a butterscotch flavour, it mainly impacted on the lovely chewy texture (I’d definitely pop the flavour up with some butterscotch chips.)
Butterscotch Pudding Cookies (adapted from the Nestle Tollhouse recipe)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
2 1/4 cups plain flour
1 packet butterscotch pudding
Sift in the bicarbonate of soda and plain flour. Mix in the chocolate chips.
And if you’re training, eat lots of them!
