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.

    This recipe did not turn out anything like the picture. I saw another comment about them flattening out and that’s exactky what mine did. I have never made a cookie dough that turned out so badly and flat. The cookies ran together so badly. And I agree with another comment, the recipe is far too salty. I am a very experienced baker and this was a major fail

    I also make super easy cookies using:1 pkg regular, cook and serve pudding mix, 3/4 cup biscuit mix, 1 egg and 1/4 cup oil. I mix the oil and egg and add to the mixed dry ingredients.One can add nuts, cocoa powder, chocolate chips, dried fruit- up to half a cup. I make into balls and flatten with fork and bake 10 minutes or so at 350 degrees.

        Hi Shelly,
        I just made these. They’re pretty and tasty.
        I have a question. I had to leave mine in oven about 12-13 minutes because they didn’t seem done. When I took them out and cooled them, I cut one, and it looked half raw – or is that the pudding? Is it suppose to look like that because of the pudding?

          They shouldn’t be raw, no, but you definitely don’t want to over bake them, as they get hard! Sounds like I would add another minute or 2 to the bake time if you make them again. I will say, let them cool completely and I think you’ll be happy!

    I just made these tonight! My kids loved them but said there’s a salty taste to them. I think that’s the kosher salt (first time using it in cookies). Is that what they should taste like? Sweet but a little salty kick?

    1. Shelly

      Could be! If you used salted butter and kosher salt that could be what you’re tasting…which is how I make them btw…but I am a salty girl 🙂 If you try them again you can use half the salt, or try unsalted butter.

    I just made these. I used French vanilla pudding and in the future try white chocolate pudding mix and cheesecake pudding mix. I only used 1/2 tsp vanilla and added 1/2 to 3/4 tsp almond extract, depending how strong you want it and 1/2 to 3/4 tsp butter extract. They made them taste even more yummy. I add almond to almost all my recipes and have do so for 20 years and I always get asked what a in there. Plus I put dough in fridge for 30 min before baking so they wouldn’t spread. I also might frost with my homemade cherry frosting. These are really yummy!!!

    Made these during the snowstorm yesterday – and they are perfect! Testing them out for a baby shower and I was very pleased with them. I did bake a little longer – I like the bottoms to be a golden color. Thank you!
    Oh I doubled the recipe – made lots of cookies!

  6. Stephanie

    I just made these last night and OMG they are SO good! And this recipe makes the perfect amount of cookies (I got 21 cookies out of one batch). They are so soft and chewy, going to be a real hit! Thanks!

  7. Michelle

    These are delicious and turn out perfect every time! It’s fun making them festive for all the different holidays by just changing the color of the sprinkles! For fall I use a package of pumpkin spice pudding and substitute pumpkin pie spice for the vanilla. Yum!

  8. Donna

    I made these tonight and I really wanted them to turn out looking like the picture, but unfortunately they did not. Do you know why they flatten out?

  9. Carly I.

  10. Michelle

    These cookies are so fun and really delicious! I love changing the color of sprinkles depending on the season. I’m about to make another batch using pink, pastel green and yellow sprinkles. So glad I stumbled upon this recipe!

  11. Michelle

    These cookies are delicious! First time making them and I will be including them on my Christmas cookies list! They are very festive looking and I wanted to make something that would cheer me up! I used French Vanilla pudding (love vanilla) and tin foil with butter flavored cooking spray. Really have to watch using tin foil; but they are definitely a new favorite cookie!
