These SUPER SOFT Sprinkle Pudding cookies are so so easy and loaded with vanilla flavor!

Before you’re all, “yawnnnnn I’ve seen pudding cookies a trillionty times” stay with me for a second…

I firmly believe in the value of a solid basic recipe. Basics are the recipes you make most often…

Of ALL THE BAKING I do here in my kitchen the recipe most requested and most baked is chocolate chip cookies. Certainly I am all about the special occasion dessert, I mean duh, but if I’ve learned anything from you nice folks it’s that easy, everyday classics are your jam. Those are the recipes you come back to time and time again.

So with that said, these super soft sprinkle pudding cookies will be a staple in your baking arsenal from this moment on. Trust me. They’re ridiculously easy, loaded with vanilla flavor, non-messy and did I mention sprinkles are involved? Yep.

Adding pudding to the cookie dough is a simple trick to amp up the flavor, but also to keep the cookies soft. Make sure you’re using instant pudding, not “cook and serve”. The coagulants in the “cook and serve” are different than the instant, containing a large amount of cornstarch. The texture will be altered and it won’t bake up as nicely.

I used regular old vanilla instant pudding… but you could really use any flavor you wanted to. Flavored pudding will add a nice subtle flavor to the cookies, like I did with my Butterscotch Apple Pudding Cookies.

And yes you’ll need sprinkles. I used this fun mix of all my leftover sprinkles.

These SUPER SOFT Sprinkle Pudding cookies are so so easy and loaded with vanilla flavor! When you scoop the dough you can even add a few extra sprinkles on top if you’re feeling fancy. Truth be told I did that on a few cookies and then I got lazy!

There’s no chilling time necessary, meaning these cuties will go from birth to belly in under 30 minutes.

The texture is outstanding! Make sure not to over-bake them if you want super soft cookies. If you prefer a little bit of a crispy texture, no problem just bake them a little bit longer!

  • ¾ cup butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, plus 1 yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 (3.5-ounce packet instant vanilla pudding mix)
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ cup sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment beat the butter and sugar on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add in the egg, vanilla, baking soda and salt. Mix until combined, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  3. Next mix in the pudding mix for 30 seconds.

  7. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Oh boy! Shelly, these look magical! We don’t really eat pudding cookies over here in Australia so they are a real treat for us. Thanks for posting!

I love the crinkly look of these cookies. They almost look like scooped ice cream.
And you can never have too many sprinkles!

Yum! These look so good. I just LOVE soft cookies and can’t wait to make these. I do have a question on the print icon on your recipes. Could you possibly set it up to include the photo of the finished item? I really like having a picture on the recipes I print. Thanks!

I baked these cookies today. They where still extremely soft after 10 minutes. I had to bake them for over 15 minutes and then put in the freezer for a few minutes. I would not recommend this recipe. I am a good baker and cook (culinary arts degree).

Are you using salted or unsalted butter?
I have unsalted butter and I want to know if I need to add extra salt.

Hate to be negative but this was just average at best. They turned out like your basic sugar cookie but with some sprinkles. I basically just had to buy some pudding mix because I had everything else but I’d say if you had to go out and buy all the ingredients then just get yourself some slice and bake sugar cookies because they taste the same. They weren’t gross by any means but hardly amazing. Also I had to bake mine for close to 15 minutes not 8-10 just to get them to set and I’d say I have a… Read more »
