Very Vanilla Pudding Cookies: Sweet Bella Roos #vanilla #cookies

These very vanilla pudding cookies might be the best cookies I’ve ever made.  They might be the best cookies I’ve ever eaten… and I’ve eaten my fair share of cookies.  And maybe yours.

These cookies are light and fluffy, with a perfect vanilla flavor.  I love it when I can’t decide if a cookie tastes better hot from the oven or on the second day.  When still warm they tasted like the cookie form of vanilla pudding.  I prefer my vanilla pudding warm like the way my mom used to make it when I was a kid.

Once upon a time I wanted to make vanilla pudding all by myself.  That’s when I learned the very valuable lesson that you have to follow a recipe, and that it really does make a difference what order the ingredients go in.  Read: don’t add eggs to a warm mixture… unless you want scrambled eggs in your pudding.  I’ll never forget that.

    May I ask a dumb question? Is it instant pudding that is intended for this recipe or the cook & serve type? Thanks!!

    • says

      Leslie- I wondered that too when I started making pudding cookies! I use the instant pudding in my recipes. (And since I tried it, I haven’t gone back to making them without!)

    This may be a dumb question, but with the vanilla you make the vanilla pudding like the directions on the package? Or you use the powder in the recipe?

      Hi Sasha, the dough will be a little wet/sticky- it helps to use a cookie scoop, but you can also try to add a little more flour. Or maybe let it chill in the fridge for just a bit. Hope that helps!

    The cookies are delicious! I substituted Greek yogurt for the butter (because I was out) and they came out equally splendid. Thanks for such a quick and easy recipe for our family. These are a big hit at our home!

    These are absolutely divine!!! I was about 1/4 tsp short of vanilla so I just added what I had. Glad I didn’t have enough because in my opinion these have the perfect amount of vanilla flavor with 1 3/4 tsp vanilla. I also refrigerated the dough about 3 hours before baking. Kept the dough chilled before each batch went in the oven. They turned out lovely. Thanks for the recipe!

    Have you tried it with different flavors of pudding? I’m thinking chocolate or lemon. I assume it doesn’t matter. Excited to try these!
