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.

Absolutely brilliant, they turned out perfectly. I used Nuttalex (buttery) and Sweet William chocolate drops to make it dairy free for my son. All 3 kids loved them. Thank you so much.

I am a bit confused about the eggs- Is it one full egg plus an egg yolk? Or just one egg in total?
Appreciate the help! Excited to try them!!!

Hi! I have heard so many good things about these cookies. Can I mix these by hand without a stand mixer? Thanks!

I’ve probably left a review several years ago, but these never fail to disappoint. My fiance requests them all the time!
My favourite way to make them is with white chocolate pudding mix, but it’s hard to find up in Canada (or at least where I live)… I think the next time I will replace the sprinkles with mini chocolate chips and see how those go!

I want to make these SO badly! If I’m out of Baking Soda, would Baking Powder work?

We’ve made these a few times now. Awesome cookies! But I would use about half the amount of butter listed in the recipe. 3/4 of a cup is way too much and then the cookies just end up tasting like straight butter.

Great and simple recipe! They turned out great! Very fluffy cookies and not a ton of spread to them!

Super yummy but very sweet! I will cut back on the sugar next time, I don’t think you need that much since there is sugar in the pudding mix as well. Made these with my 2 year old into chocolate cookies since we had dark chocolate Hershey pudding on hand. She liked the dough more than the cookies ?
