Have you ever tasted a pudding cookie? No? You have no idea what you are missing then. I discovered pudding cookies last Christmas and am so excited to share these White Chocolate Peppermint Pudding Cookies with you today.
Baking Christmas cookies is one of my favorite traditions to do with the kids over the holidays. I remember when my dad used to come home from work with a giant plate of cookies from his office cookie swap. I always looked forward to that day and all the different types of cookies on the plate. My favorite were the Christmas Wreath Cookies. I’m not sure if there were any pudding cookies on those plates back in the day. If there were, I’m sure I gobbled them up.
The “secret” to pudding cookies is obviously the pudding mix. Believe me, you will never have a dry pudding cookie. Unless you bake it too long. I’m not even a big white chocolate fan and I loved these cookies. The combination of the white chocolate and peppermint is just so yummy.
You will need a few supplies to make your life easier when making these cookies:
