What better way to celebrate than with Funfetti Pudding Mix Cookies? I’ve tried my hand at sprinkle cookies a few times, but they always left me tasting too much sprinkle. What better than to hide that with the flavor of a vanilla pudding mix and a bit of almond extract? Not only does is the pudding mix add a sweet, light flavor but it is also aids these cookies in adding a wonderful texture. The thickening agents in the mix also help these cookies spread less and the mix just offers such a soft texture to these cookies.

My family seriously could not get enough of these cookies! I made two batches since I had to add some light tweaks the second time around, but even by a second batch no one was getting tired of these cookies. I brought them on vacation with us and they had to be the most craved thing I brought.

Party or no party planned, you’ve gotta try these cookies! Both young and old alike are going to love them!

Enjoy!

    I’m making a batch of these cookies right now for a finger-food pot luck on Sunday (a post Lesson & Carols party). I used this organic sugar I got from Trader Joe’s which evidently must have a little bit of molasses in it as it was tinted brown (not as brown as light brown sugar but still kinda brown) and I did smell the molasses that must’ve been in it too and I also used the equivalent amount of Olivio-brand coconut oil spread instead of butter to save on fat. The batter seemed a little moist to me so I added a little more flour and took the baking time up to 15 minutes and the cookies look pretty decent. They’re a little more brown than the ones you have pictured in the blog but I kinda like having my cookies be a nice golden brown. I also sampled one and they’re pretty good. :-D

    I’m going to make these cookies but need to know about how many dozen it makes. I’m using a medium Pampered Chef cookie scoop

    • Joseph

      Nope…you read right the first time…14 tablespoons. That’s 1 whole stick plus 3/4 of another stick (6 tablespoons). Very buttery cookies. That’s why I used an equivalent amount of Olivio coconut oil spread to save on fat. LOL!

    I just made the dough for these cookies. I followed the recipe to a T. It is extremely crumbly and dry. I’m not sure if the addition of an extra egg would help? I’m not even going to bake them. They crack into pieces on the cookie sheet.

      Just be careful when measuring the flour, it was likely packed in casing the dough to be too thick and dry. A little milk or egg would help. Sorry that happened!

    I made these Funfetti Pudding cookies with my 3-1/2 yo grandson and they are my new favorite cookie! Delicious!

  • Jocelyn

    These are fantastic! I love that they don’t require any chilling. Your cookie recipes are the best!

  • Claire Innes

    This sounds like a great recipe!!! My only problem is that I’m not very familiar with things like pudding mixes – would it be something like a custard mixture? If anyone could direct me towards any brand you could find in a common English supermarket, that would be great! Looking forward to making these!
