M&M Pudding Cookies!

Perfect for Christmas but really, you can use any color M&M’s in these delicious pudding cookies! I found a similar recipe for these on Betty Crocker’s website and thought I would give them a try as part of my Christmas cookie platter! I’m so glad I did. They are so pretty and literally melt in your mouth. Santa is definitely going to eat a whole bunch of these when he visits our house tonight 😉

We have no time! It’s Christmas Eve! Hurry up and make these cookies!

What you will need:

Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter at room temp
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 box vanilla instant pudding mix
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups M&M’s

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In another large bowl, beat together butter and both sugars until creamy and smooth. Beat in pudding mix. Beat in eggs, one at a time until combined. Add vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mixture until just combined. Stir in M&M’s.

Drop on baking sheet by rounded tablespoons. Bake for 9-11 minutes. Cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
