Oreo Pudding Cookies

Maybe I'm a bit behind in the way of cooking, but I have never used pudding in cookies before! I have tried it in cakes and loved the soft and moist results, so of course I thought I should love it in cookies too, right? Right! These were fantastic. So soft and moist and I loved the addition of the Hershey Cookies 'n Cream bars. Ive only tried the Oreo pudding in these cookies, but I'm sure you could mix and match pudding flavors and mix-ins that would have excellent results. Some versions that are on my list to try: Chocolate pudding and chopped Reese's cups, or lemon pudding with white chocolate chips. So if you're looking to make some cookies but want something different from your regular chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin, try these! They're just as easy but have a unique taste and everybody will love them. (Recipe and picture courtesy of Sweet Treats and More)
  •  1 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 (4 oz) package Oreo pudding mix
  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 Hershey's Cookies & Cream bars, chopped into small pieces
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Combine the flour and baking soda together in a small bowl, set aside. Cream together butter and sugar. Beat in pudding mix until blended, then eggs and vanilla. Add the flour and soda mixture. Stir in the Cookies & Cream bars and chocolate chips. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cookies spring back when touched lightly. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack. Makes 2-3 dozen, depending on size.
