Double Peanut Butter Butterscotch Oatmeal Pudding Cookies

Double Peanut Butter Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies
     I make pudding chip cookies all the time, and I always wanted to make a peanut butter pudding chip cookie. (Peanut butter cookies are one of my husband’s favorite kinds). To my knowledge, Jell-O does not make a peanut butter instant pudding packet. This did not stop me from attempting the flavor though. Instead, I used instant butterscotch pudding mix and creamed in almost a cup of peanut butter with the regular butter and sugars. I also added some oats for additional texture and peanut butter chips.
     To my surprise, the cookies turned out just like I wanted. They had a strong peanut butter flavor but a soft pudding chip consistency. Basically, they were a peanut butter lover’s dream.
I used a three tablespoon capacity scoop to measure out the cookie dough.
I used the palm of my hand to slightly flatten the top of the dough mounds before baking.
