The Best Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

These Are The Best Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies, Which have been a favorite in my family for many years.

When I was a young mother, I found a recipe on the back of the bag of chocolate chips that I had purchased with a coupon. I remember looking at the recipe and thinking, “who puts pudding in cookies”?

Needless to say, I adapted the recipe from there over the years. My family’s favorite cookie? These cookies! They are even better with homemade Vanilla!

  • 1 cup softened butter (do not melt!)
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 box vanilla pudding 3.4 ounces
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2-1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup pecans chopped


Preheat the oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl or stand mixer, mix softened butter, sugar, and brown sugar until creamed.
Add vanilla and eggs and mix well.
Sift the pudding, baking soda, and flour together in a small bowl.
Slowly add to creamed mixture, mixing well.
Mix in chips and nuts.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.The centers of the cookies will look slightly undercooked. However, they will firm up as they cool.
Remove cookies from the oven and let cool completely before moving them to a plate.


Omit nuts if there is an allergy. For a twist, you can use one cup of white chocolate chips with one cup of regular chocolate chips.
