Cookies and Creme Cookies

by Jennifer Wieland

Last week Jenny Flake over at The Picky Palate had a recipe up for making the perfect M & M cookies. From her pictures you can see that they do indeed look to be absolutely perfect! When I saw them and read her post I knew I had to try them immediately. So of course, I made a bee line to the store just to get some mini M & M’s and start a cookie recipe craze here.

Now what makes this story amusing is that I went to two different stores looking for the bags of mini M & M’s and was unable to find them while dragging three kids with horrible, runny noses and hacking coughs throughout each location just for that one item. Don’t worry. I totally know what you are thinking… Mom of the Year, right? No? Okay, well they did want me to make them to cheer them up so that is what I am going with to make myself feel like a passable mom.

The secret ingredient on these cookies though is pudding. Let me tell you, I have been throwing pudding into a bunch of cookie recipes I worked on this past week and it does make for some awesome cookies! This is how I came up with my Cookies ‘n Creme Cookies. These are all kinds of crazy yummy!

makes 2 dozen large cookies

1/2 c. (1 stick) butter, softened
1 c. sugar
1 lrg. egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 c. good quality cocoa powder
3 tbsp. Jello Oreo Cookies ‘n Creme Instant Pudding mix
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. milk
4 Hershey’s Cookies ‘n Creme Bars, chopped

Preheat oven to 350° and line the baking sheets with parchment paper.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment cream the butter and sugar until well combined on medium-high speed. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until it’s completely incorporated. Add the flour, pudding mix, baking soda and salt and mix until combined on low. Add in the milk and mix in on medium speed. Stir in the chopped Hershey’s Cookies ‘n Creme Bars.

Using a medium cookie scoop (mine was 1 oz.) scoop the dough and place 2 inches apart. Bake 10-12 minutes. Cool on the cookie sheet 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
