If you are in the market for a really great cookie recipe, head over to Two Peas & Their Pod and look around. Cookies are her bread and butter. The first cookie recipe I made from her blog was Banana Pudding Cookies (here), need I say more except I still dream about them!
I needed a white chocolate chip cookie recipe, and so naturally I looked there first. If you have never added an instant pudding mix to a cookie recipe, have no fear. The cookies are moist, soft, and delicious.
Vanilla Pudding White Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup unsalted butter (room temp)
¾ cup brown sugar
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 (3.4oz) package vanilla instant pudding mix
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
2 cups white chocolate chips (can also make with semi-sweet chocolate chips)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat.
2. Using a mixer, beat together butter and sugars until creamy. Add the pudding mix, eggs, and vanilla extract. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in the white chocolate chips.
3. Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoons onto baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until slightly golden. Remove cookies from oven and allow to cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely.
