Soft and chewy butterscotch pudding cookies loaded with butterscotch chips!
A few months after my husband and I were married, we took a trip to Boston. First off – huge fan of Boston. HUGE FAN. That was one of my favorite trips ever ever everrrrrr. We took a bus tour (which normally I’d not think was very fun but when touring the old victorian district, it’s a must) and we had a few stops along the way.
At one of our stops I spotted a candy shop across the way. Okay we were parked right outside of it, it was impossible to miss. But where do you think I spent the 15 minute break? Not at the minute-men statue, no sirree. The candy shop was calling my name and when candy calls, you heed the call.
I could hardly decide what to get because, um, yeah… a whole store full of candy, sort of self explanatory. But I’ve always had a soft spot for those old fashioned candy sticks, my dad used to bring them home from business trips when we were little. So I grabbed a butterscotch one. I heart butterscotch big time. But my husband, do you know what he said? Ewe. He said ewe! And I thought, oh crap, did I really not ask him how he felt about butterscotch before we said “I do”?!
Just joshin. I didn’t question my marital vows. I did think he was crazy though. Luckily, I have some very good news. I have converted my husband to butterscotch in the past few months. First with these amazing oatmeal butterscotch blondies. And then I reinforced the budding love with these ultra soft and perfectly chewy butterscotch chip pudding cookies.
