Chocolate Pudding Butterscotch Cookies

I have been trying to challenge myself to use stuff that is in my pantry instead of buying more...well a couple/few items made up some wonderful cookies (after a few searches to see what I could find to use up these wonderful ingredients.) I found the original recipe on this blog here and where she used vanilla pudding and chocolate chips, I altered the recipe a tad and used what I had! I hope you all enjoy! I know a couple of boys over here LOVED them!

1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
3.4 oz package instant chocolate pudding
2 eggs
1 1/2 t vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1 t baking soda
1/4 t salt                   
2 cups butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 350. Mix together butter and sugars until creamy.  Add the pudding, eggs and vanilla and mix again.  Add the baking soda and salt and mix one more time.  Add the flour. You can start with 2 cups and add the last 1/4 cup if needed. Lastly add the butterscotch chips and mix.  

Drop by the tablespoonful full and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.  

Let them cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before removing to a cooling rack.
