  • Depending on the age and ability of your child, an adult may need to put the cookie tray in and take the cookie tray out of the oven.
  • Tips and Variations:
  • We have used chocolate as well as vanilla pudding to make this recipe. We added a bit of vanilla extract to the vanilla pudding dough to boost the flavor. We also found that a bit less flour made the cookie thinner and crisper rather than thick and crumbly. Try different flavors of extract with a variety of pudding flavors!
  • As an added bit of variety we served this with Chocolate chip cookie dough dip.
  • Want to make an assortment of cookies for a platter? Try different flavor puddings, these gluten free cookies , these low calorie funfetti cookies, or these no bake cookies. Putting varieties out allow for dietary restrictions in a crowd. Label the cookies so those watching calories or gluten can easily spot what they need and want!
