Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 pkg. (about 3.4 oz.) butterscotch-flavored instant pudding mix
  • 2 large eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cups (about 8 oz.) Butterscotch Morsels
  • Nougat Filling (see recipe)
  • Caramel Layer (see recipe)
  • Icing (see recipe)

Directions

  • For the cookie base: PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Line 17 x 11 x 1-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  • COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add pudding mix, eggs and vanilla extract; mix well. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in 1 1/3 cups butterscotch morsels. Spread and pat dough evenly into prepared baking pan.
  • BAKE for 10 to 11 minutes or until light golden brown. Carefully hold pan 2 to 3-inches above a heat-resistant surface and allow pan to drop. (This creates a chewier cookie base.) Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
