Very Vanilla Pudding Cookies

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!!

    • Emily Bruno 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!)

  8. I love these!!! So pretty too. :)

  19. Leah says:

    These look delicious! Quick question: When you say pkg of vanilla pudding do you mean the powdered kind or the pre-made kind in a pack?

  20. Nancy Swanson says:

    Is that instant pudding mix or the one you cook, or does it matter?

  21. Ashley says:

    Is it the 3.4 oz box of pudding mix? They also make a larger 5.1 oz size

  22. Gosia says:

    Hi Emily! I also like to use instant puddings in my recipes ;) And I love anything what is vanilla! I will definitely try this one! I recently baked a fluffy vanilla tea cake using of course an instant pudding and it turned out great! Maybe if you have a sec you could visit, I would be honored!

  23. Ali says:

    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?

  24. Lana says:

    I was thinking of doing these for some christmas baking. Do they freeze well?

  25. Nikell says:

  28. Sasha says:

    I just made the mix and it is stiff; It is to wet to be rolled into balls. What can I do to fix it?

    • Emily Bruno says:

      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!

  32. Jennifer says:

    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!

    When you put them on the cookie sheet do you rolls the dough in a ball or what?
