White Chocolate Pudding cookies start with good quality white chocolate and white chocolate pudding mix. This is an exceptional recipe for making cookies that are crisp on the outside and soft on the inside.
These cookies bake nicely without flattening down as most chocolate chip cookies usually do. The white chocolate instant pudding mix adds great flavour and texture to these cookies. It is important that you use only the instant pudding mix.
I used fine quality white chocolate that I chopped into chunks, chips will work as well, but definitely won’t have the taste of fine quality chocolate. I also like to use vanilla beans in my cookie recipes for superior vanilla taste! Save the left-over pod, add some sugar to it to make a delicious Vanilla Sugar in other recipes.
