So in my latest quest to find the perfect cookie recipe, I decided to make these Vanilla Pudding Cookies for a Christmas party I was attending.
From what I can tell, everybody loved them because they were all gone before the party was over!
I believe this is the first time I have ever used a pudding mix in a cookie recipe. The results were pretty good! I will have to experiment more often using pudding mixes in my cookies.
I used mini chocolate chips for this recipe, but you can easily substitute for whatever you have hanging around like butterscotch chips. Butterscotch pudding and butterscotch chips. Now there's an idea!
