Easy Oreo Pudding Mix Cookies
The Pudding Cookie
The Editor in Chief for our college newspaper would (very rarely) bring in chocolate pudding cookies, which he claimed he made from his own secret recipe. He never would share his recipe with me, but then again, there is something known as the internet. So it was pretty easy for me to find a pudding cookie recipe to use.
But when I brought in cookies to our meeting, they had to be different than his. They had to be something a little more unique. The solution--change up the flavor of pudding.
Try adding a cup of peanut butter to the mix for even more flavor!
I was doing a photography project on Oreos, so I needed as many Oreo products as possible. It was for the sake of my art that I just had to buy a package of Oreo pudding, and I just had to supplement it with a pack of mini Oreos.
Thus was born the Oreo pudding cookie. The recipe quickly became my favorite cookie, and as I have made them for friends and church events, many people have asked me for the recipe. I mean, they're made with Oreos, of course they're delicious! And using pudding as a base for your cookie makes them moist and very easy to make.
