Strawberry Cream Cookies
Last Christmas, my sister made some Banana Cream cookies (click here for recipe), and it was then that I fell in love with pudding cookies.
I came across this recipe and they became an instant hit. But heed my warning: if you prefer your cookies to be more toward the crispier side, these are not the cookies for you.
This recipe calls for white chocolate pudding. While I recommend making this recipe as is the first time that you prepare it. After that, be adventurous! Try out different flavors of pudding and see what combination works for you.

- 1 cup butter, softened (2 sticks)
- 3 tbsp. strawberry jello (not prepared)
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 3.5 ounce box instant white chocolate pudding mix (NOT PREPARED)
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
- Sift together: flour, pudding mix, baking soda, and salt
- Cream together: butter, sugar, and jello (make sure it is well mixed)
- Add eggs one at a time (mix well)
- Add vanilla (mix well)
- Slowly add flour mixture to cream mixture (mix well)
- Stir in white chocolate chips (do I need to say, mix well?)
- Spoon/scoop onto a greased (or parchment paper covered) baking sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until edges start to brown.
- Play around with the pudding flavors in this one and see what other kind of strawberry cookies you can create. I imagine that a cheesecake pudding or maybe even a lemon pudding would be delicious.
- Because of the pudding in this recipe, the cookie is somewhat delicate. It is very soft, so my recommendation is to make sure it cools completely on a wire rack.
- When making these cookies, I use a red #24 scoop. Which scoops about 2.5 tbsp. of dough. This yields me about 20 cookies per recipe. This also means that I have to cook mine for longer than 9-11 minutes. Obviously if your scoops are smaller, you will yield more cookies & have a shorter cooking time.
- These cookies are a beautiful color. Just know that the more you mix them, the lighter they will become.
