Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

The pudding in the batter makes for a moist, soft chocolate chip cookie – even after a few days! What’s fun about this recipe is that you can experiment with different flavors of pudding (check out our Oreo Pudding Cookies) and different mix-ins (besides the chocolate chips). Butterscotch pudding cookies taste great with pecans or walnuts. Or, try chocolate pudding for a really rich taste.
