Why Add Pudding To Your Cookie Dough?

Adding instant pudding to your 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.

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!

Can you use cookie cutters on the dough? Or will this recipe not work?

Do you used softened butter or cold butter? I’m really excited about these 🙂

There’s no liquid. Do I make the pudding and then add that to the other mix???

My mom was making pudding cookies years ago when instant pudding first came out. She used all the flavors for variety in our lunches and they were great! Lost my recipe years ago and now yours is here! YAY. Gonna try this real soon.

I’m so happy to find this recipe! I’m doing a lot of cut out sugar cookies for xmas festivities and family, but they take so long to make and decorate. I’ve now decided to make these as well, to cut my cut outs in half! Yay! I’m going to use xmas sprinkles, and if they’re not to sweet, I thought it might be cute with crackled tops, to sprinkle with a little powdered sugar! Thanks so much for sharing! Merry Christmas!?

How long do they stay good for

Everyone has different taste. I found these cookies to be way too sweet and way too greasy. Will not be making these again and will stick to my regular sugar cookies that I make. Wanted to try a new recipe (yours) and did not care for it at all. Sorry!

You are adding in the dry pudding mix into the recipe right? Not pre-making the pudding and setting aside then adding. Just making sure here.

Oscar
Oscar

Yup, adding it in dry. I just had to double check that I was doing the right thing. lol

I used Krusteaz GF all purpose flour, pistachio instant pudding mix, and added a tablespoon 2% milk to the dough at the end of mixing, they turned out amazing! These cookies are the perfect combination of soft and crispy. My 3.5 year old boy can’t get enough of them! Thank you for sharing your recipe!

Oh my goodness! I can’t get over the negative comments ABOUT SPRINKLE COOKIES! I mean, what’s more fun than sugar cookies? SUGAR COOKIES FILLED WITH RAINBOW SPRINKLES! I adore these cookies and so do my kids! I have to alternate who gets to pick which colored we are going to use. We have probably made them half a dozen time and I always eat the majority of them. Oops! Haha. Keep sharing your yummy creations and don’t let the internet trolls get you down!

Shut the front door and hold my horses because OH MY WORD……these are AHHHHHHHMAZING! These are the best sugar cookies I have ever had. It’s so hard to find a good chewy sugar cookie so look no further. Thank you so much for sharing this.

I made these fir my granddaughters and were a big hit. I substituted the sugar with Truvia and sugar free pudding.
I made a second batch and substituted the sugar with Truvia, sugar free pudding, I also substituted the flour with 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon of almond flour and 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon coconut flour. You need to bake them a little longer. I think I naked then for 14 mins. My husband loves them .
Thanks for an awesome recipe.

I love the flavor of these cookies! Only issue I had is when they baked they spread very thin. I did chill the dough before baking- do you think that is the issue? If I add more flour would that help then become a thicker cookie? Either way we still ate them all, flavor was delicious:) just looking for suggestions, thank you in advance!

Laura

Thank you so much!

I’m a pregnant Mama in need of some sweets, for myself and my boys. I ran out of chocolate chips the other day, but really wanted to make cookies and was drawing a blank when I’d look in the pantry. Found this recipe and actually had everything to make them! They just came out of the oven, looking and smelling amazing! Can’t wait to dig in!

These were amazing!! Added some magenta food coloring and out of the oven I almost died of pure joy but then my husband couldn’t stop raving about having one out of the fridge! Soo good all around and so easy to make! Thanks!

These turned out great! I will definitely be making them again and again. I didn’t have any trouble with them being flat like some reviews have said. Yum, definitely a keeper!!

So delicious, but I would prob leave out the cup of sugar next time. The pudding already has 19 grams of sugar so to me these are wayyyy too sweet! I substituted the butter for coconut oil and they taste very good!

Ashley

Very yummy! Thanks for the recipe. It was easy to make with my toddler.

This recipe is amazing. Always make it during Christmas with Christmas sprinkles. I was just wondering if they can be made ahead of time and frozen? Would bake time need to be adjusted?

I’m in grad school and have made this recipe for a few class parties and everyone loves them! Will be making with red and green sprinkles for our Christmas party today 🙂

I made this recipe to a T and it did not come out at all. Dough was very dry and crumbly. Cookies didn’t flatten out when baked. Had to shape in to a cookie then back and it stayed as is. Flavor was good and they were edible but very weird dough texture which made it difficult to handle.
