Oh I wish you could taste these, they are so good. Soft and buttery with just the right amount chewy going on. They have quickly become my favorite go-to cookie, and they couldn’t be easier. With just four ingredients, start to finish you can have a batch of these babies out in less than 15 minutes. You use a cake mix and box of pudding, making the flavor combinations endless. Just leave ‘em like they are, or…
make them fun and festive like I did for the Fourth Of July. Put a dollop of cream cheese frosting on the center of one, sandwich on a second then simply change the sprinkles for the occasion – or mood. I’ll have the recipe after the jump!
Cake Mix Pudding Cookies Recipe
Makes 2 dozen cookies.
1 Duncan Hines 16.5oz cake mix (I used classic white, but you can use any flavor)
1 small 3.4oz box of instant pudding (I used vanilla, but again whatever suits your fancy)
2 extra large eggs
1 stick softened butter
- Preheat oven to 350°
- In a large bowl stir together the cake and pudding mixes
- Add eggs and butter and mix until a dough is formed – you may have to get your hands involved ;)
- Roll into 1 inch balls and place on an ungreased nonstick cookie sheet or baking stone
- Bake for 6-7 minutes
- Place on a baking rack to cool
You do not want to over cook these, they won’t be soft and chewy if you do. It may seem like they aren’t quite finished but once they cool they are perfect. Store in an air-tight container, or ziplock bag.
If you have some bored kiddos, these are the perfect simple activity. Just set them up to the table and let them at it.
I do hope someone has everything to make these today so you can share in my enthusiasm. I had to bundle the rest of ours up to take them to friends or I’d have made myself sick!
Happy Tuesday friends and thanks so much for reading,
