Vanilla Pudding Confetti Cookies

Do you ever have those recipes that you've had on your Pinterest board for about five years, that you have full intention of making at some point, but you never actually get around to it? That's how it's been for me and pudding cookies. When I was on the hunt years ago for a good chocolate chip cookie recipe, I had found a recipe that called for a pudding mix, but never got around to making them. 

Fast forward several years later, and I finally made a cookie recipe that uses a pudding mix! And guess what? They did not disappoint. I made these after school with the kids last night and they were the perfect after school snack. They're the perfect amount of cooked enough so that they aren't super gooey, but soft, dense, sweet, and delicious all at the same time. They're the perfect consistency! I actually think I might turn this into my new go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe by omitting the sprinkles and white chocolate chips in the future, but that's a recipe to be tested another day! 

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 3oz box instant vanilla pudding mix
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla 
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups flour
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup sprinkles

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Cream together the butter, sugars, pudding mix, and vegetable oil until well combined.

Next beat in your eggs and vanilla. 

Add your dry ingredients to the mixture (baking soda, salt, and flour). 

Next fold in your white chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, and sprinkles. 

Using a 1 1/2 tbsp cookie scoop, scoop the cookies onto an ungreased cooke sheet, and bake for 8 minutes. Let cookies cool on the pan for a couple minutes before transferring them onto a sheet of wax paper on your counter to finish cooling. Recipe yields about 30 cookies.
