SUPER SOFT DOUBLE CHOCOLATE PUDDING COOKIES
The title says it all! These cookies are super soft and they are double chocolate with chocolate chips and chocolate pudding. I love a pudding cookie! Because the recipe calls for a package of instant pudding, it cuts out a few ingredients and steps, making the recipe that much easier.
I love to try new recipes and I get really interested when I see a traditional recipe with an unusual ingredient. I had my first pudding cookie at a party and it was delicious. So, I hunted down the person that brought them and asked if she would share the recipe. Thankfully, she was happy to share her recipe and I was surprised to see instant pudding mix on the ingredient list.
This recipe is so easy to make. First of all, there are not a lot of ingredients, which is a big bonus. Also, the dough is very thick so it is easy to work with. Because the dough is so thick, you might want to add an extra egg, if you aren’t working with large or extra large eggs.
Because this cookie dough is very dense, I would not advise doubling the recipe. My kitchen aid was struggling with this dense dough. If you are using a Bosch, you can double the recipe. Surprisingly, the dough is dense but the cookies come out so light and chewy.
Softer and chewier than your average chocolate chip cookie!
Another reason to love these cookies is that pudding cookies stay soft and chewy longer than other homemade cookies. So, store them in an airtight container for about a week, or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
I hope you like these as much as I do!
