Pistachio Pudding Cookies

This Pistachio Pudding Cookie Recipe is a keeper! The addition of chopped pistachios and white chocolate chips make these irresistible!

I have had cookies on the brain lately. I can’t seem to stop!

I ain’t mad about it either.

Except my jeans are a little mad about it.

And my shorts…

And my {gasp} swimsuit.

 

I read all those ecards all over Pinterest and Facebook telling me how “nothing tastes as good as thin  feels” or “choose what you want now or what you want most”…

You know what? I want a cookie now AND most.

SO…

Anyhow, I will totally get back on track…just as soon as I eat the last of these Pistachio Pudding Cookies.

I mean, I can’t throw them out…aren’t there still starving children somewhere?

It would be rude and entitled to just toss cookies into the wastebasket.

I’m choosing my cause, folks.

 

Ok, cookies…they are made (flavored really) with a pudding mix.

I’ve read that pudding mix keeps them soft yada yada…but I found mostly it just flavors. That’s my opinion anyway.

And in this case the pudding flavored AND colored the cookies…so don’t be scared by the green-ness.

It’s just there to remind you that you are eating pistachio flavored stuff. Because it couldn’t be pistachio if it weren’t green, right?

Easy, I’m kidding.

Ok, let’s talks cookies.

Pistachio Pudding Cookies that are super soft delicious, with the added chopped pistachios and white chocolate

I have never really been a pistachio girl. I mean I do enjoy the occasional nut, but I generally would never choose a pistachio flavored item.

However,  these cookies have made me a believer. Hallelujah.

 

I even grabbed  some pistachios to throw into the cookies…

Lots of Pistachios for Pistachio Pudding Cookies!

Actually I bought already shelled pistachios for these cookies, but alas, when I went to the cupboard to procure said pistachios, they were missing, with only the shelled variety staring back at me.

One of my lovelies decided to eat the already shelled ones. SO I spent the next eleventy minutes shelling pistachios.

Then chopping…

Chopped Pistachios for Pistachio Pudding Cookies!

Finally after my hundredth birthday when I was done shelling and chopping I got to the dough.

I added the instant pudding mix…

Add Pudding right into the dough for these Pistachio Pudding Cookies!

And it made the dough an unusual green…

Pistachio Pudding Cookie DOugh...add in extra pistachios and white chocolate to really send these over the top!

Stay with me here. I swear they’re delicious.

Do the normal baking stuff…

Baking Pistachio Pudding Cookies!

And the normal cooling stuff…

Then of course the normal eating stuff…

Pistachio Pudding Cookies that are super soft delicious, with the added chopped pistachios and white chocolate

Blam. A Pistachio cookie.

PS – I added white chocolate chips because they rawk.

These look so bright and summery! It’s always worth it for pistachios. That picture of the dough on the beater is amazing. Can I just eat all of that?

So you could make these with anykind of pudding, nuts and chips?
Like Chocolate or Banana Pudding with walnuts and semi-sweet or Butterscotch pudding with pecans and butterscotch chips? Have you made any variations?

I’m not sure what I did wrong, but I’m positive after reading all the wonderful reviews it’s me, but mine did not turn out very well. I’ve looked over the instructions and ingredients again and I did all the steps and added the correct amount of all the ingredients. HELP??? the problem was that they didn’t flatten, they stayed round and they were “flakey”, “Crumbly” I’m not sure how to describe them. I thought well, maybe they will taste good still, NO. PLEASE HELP!!???

What kind of flour did you use? I think it’s supposed to be all purpose flour. I don’t know if that could be it, but it sounds like a good possibility.
