Let’s examine this cookie…
…bits of Oreo
…chunks of Cookies ‘N Cream candy bar
 …gooey melted chocolate chips
Um…you had me at Oreo.
I’ve actually never been a fan of pudding mix in cookies. Why? I have no idea. Maybe it was the same time I decided I hated mushrooms to which I have whole heartedly repented of. The pudding mixture makes the cookies so moist and they just melt in your mouth.
These are some of the best things I’ve eaten in a while.
And….I eat a lot of….things.
These come from my SIL Kristy over at Sweet Treats and More. Somehow we were born with the same palate so I trust everything she makes. I changed her recipe ever so slightly just to fit what I had on hand.
And thank goodness I bought 3 Cookies N’ Cream bars just in case because my babysitter helped herself to one while we were out. Which I don’t mind at all because it probably made her happy and I like happy people watching my kids.

Oreo Pudding Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 4.2 ounce package instant Oreo Pudding mix (see Note)
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Hershey's Cookies N Cream Candy Bars broken into small pieces I used 2.6 ounce King Sized bars
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl and set aside. Cream together butter and sugars. Beat in pudding mix until blended. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add the flour mixture and mix to combine. Stir in cookies n' cream pieces and chocolate chips. Batter will be thick.
  3. Using a cookie dough scooper, place golf ball sized dough balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. You do not want to overbake these! Let cookies cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet before moving to a cooking rack. Store in air-tight container. Makes two dozen.
