CHRISTMAS OREO PUDDING COOKIES

ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 (3.4 oz) package vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose Gold Medal flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped Oreos (I used holiday Oreos)
  • OPTIONAL: 1 cup white chocolate chips & 1/2 cup crushed candy canes

directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat and set aside.

2. Using a mixer, beat together butter and sugars until creamy. Add in vanilla 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 Oreos. The dough will turn pink! If you don’t want this, then you can just do normal Oreos. Optional but you can also add in White Chocolate chips and crushed candy cane pieces for more festivity!

3. Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, or until slightly golden around the edges and set. Remove cookies from oven and let cool on baking sheet for two minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely.

Note-these cookies will stay soft for 3-4 days. Store in an air-tight container on the counter.
