Santa's Favorite Cookies (AKA Pudding Cookies)

I made some special treats for my coworkers. These Santa's Favorite Cookies I found on Crazy for Crust were the perfect cookie's! I made a few batches and the kids and I each had a few (yes so off the diet wagon) and I must say they are super yummy. NOW you can replace the Christmas Color M&M's and sprinkles to whatever color you want or holiday theme! This is a must recipe!


INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 box (3.4 ounces) Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix (not sugar free)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup red and green sprinkles (or any colors)
  • 3/4 cup Christmas M&Ms (or any color of M&M)

  • DIRECTIONS:

    1. Cream butter and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. (You can also use a hand mixer.) Mix in egg and vanilla until smooth. Add pudding mix, baking soda, and salt. Mix until combined. Mix in flour, then stir in sprinkles and M&Ms.
    2. Scoop 2 tablespoon balls of cookie dough onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment or a silpat baking mat. There’s no need to space them out, you’re going to chill them. Cover and chill for at least 30 minutes.
    3. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or silpat baking mats. Place chilled cookie dough balls 2” apart on cookie sheet. Bake 9-11 minutes or until the edges just start to turn brown. Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheet before transferring to a rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days or freeze for up to one month.
ALEXIS NOTES: I found that mine needed to back for almost 15 minutes, I waited for them to crack (almost like snickerdoodles) and they were ready to come out.
