  • 1 cup butter-flavored shortening
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • ¼ cup light corn syrup
  • 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant butterscotch pudding mix

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Rice Krispies
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup butterscotch chips
  1. Preheat oven to 300°. In a large bowl, beat shortening, butter, brown sugar and peanut butter until smooth. Beat in eggs and corn syrup. In another bowl, whisk flour, pudding mix, baking powder, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Gradually beat into peanut butter mixture. Stir in Rice Krispies.
  2. Shape dough into 12 balls. Place 4-in. apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Press tops to flatten to 1-in.-thickness. Bake until tops appear dry, 22-24 minutes. Let cool on pans 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
