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.

  1. Absolutely delicious!!! I have made these cookies 5 times in the last year. They are my go-to and are by far one of my favorite cookies. Super easy to make and a hit with everyone I’ve shared with!

  2. Hi! I’d like to make these for a cookie swap. Can I double this recipe without having to change the proportion of ingredients? Thank!

  3. These tasted like sugar cookies to me. They are good but I found them a bit too sweet. I will reduce the sugar next time.
