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.

    I forgot to buy vanilla pudding at the grocery but I had chocolate pudding in the pantry. Used chocolate pudding with chocolate sprinkles. The pudding adds a great texture and flavor. Thanks!

    These cookies are a huge hit it my house, we love them! I’m about to go make another batch now.

  3. Kristy

    Love these cookies! Made them tonight for my kiddos in school tomorrow. Delicious! Saving this recipe for sure. Thank you!

    I’d like to bake these up for the kiddos. Where did you purchase these sprinkles – they are bright and cheerful – mine have a bunch of darker ones mixed in…

    1. Shelly

      They are actually a mixture of sprinkles I made on my own. I purchased a few different kinds and mixed them together. but I always buy Quin Sprinkles in bulk. I like to bake with them best because they they don’t bleed into batter! I just get them on amazon: http://amzn.to/1Y2QCd9

    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 very nice quite new oven so I don’t think that was the problem.

  6. My kids are cookie snobs. They loved them!!! I make mine a little smaller, and put the dough in the fridge while the first batch is in the oven. My kids don’t even let them cool off! YUM!!!!

  7. Jenna

    Made this today, followed the directions exactly and they turned out absolutely fabulous!! My daughter and husband LOVED them! Thanks for the recipe!

    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).

    1. Shelly

      So sorry you had an issue… sounds like they just needed a little extra bake time in your oven. Ovens do bake a little differently. Just a question, why would you put them in the freezer instead of bake them a little longer?

  9. Michele

    Hey!!! I have a silly question to ask but what is the extra yolk for?? I can’t seem to figure out what it’s for lol. I can’t wait to try them!! ??

  10. Jeneca Lynema

    I made this but used a chocolate pudding mix and Halloween Sprinkles. They are a big hit. How will I stay out of them?! Thank you!

      if you use table salt use 1/4 teaspoon less…kosher salt is a slightly coarser grain. sea salt, depending on the grain should be the same measurement as kosher.

    1. Tabby

      yes you can use the sugar free pudding mix cause I use to make these for my family and they all are Diabetics so the cookies did turn out Great just like you would have used regular sugar

        1. Shelly

          I’ve never used almond flour in these, but generally almond flour is a 1:1 sub in most baking recipes, especially cookies which as a little more forgiving than cakes!

  11. Jodi

    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!
