I’m sure I don’t have to tell you about pudding cookies. They’re all over the blogosphere and for good reason really; using pudding in your cookies almost makes them foolproof.
(I say almost because I may or may not have burned a batch of these because I was also trying to make stir-fry, disinfect our Exersaucer and come up with witty answers to Kate’s Mad Libs all at the same time.)
But you wouldn’t be that silly, right?
Adding the pudding mix makes for tender, flavorful, puffy cookies. You won’t get Flat Cookie Syndrome if you use pudding mix. Instead you get beautiful, billowy, bakery-style cookies. (Yes, I realize this paragraph is full of way-too-flowery adjectives.)
These cookies are bake sale worthy both in appearance and flavor. The three different kinds of add-ins – chocolate, peanut butter and Reese’s Pieces — make them chock full of yumminess.
