These are one of the best cookie recipes I’ve ever tried and I’ve tried tons! They are based on a chocolate chip cookie recipe that includes pudding that I found on AllRecipes.

For me, the vanilla pudding was the best part of the recipe. It added a delicious chewiness to the cookies and a wonderful vanilla flavor that I love.

I knew I had a winner when I caught both of my sons carrying handfuls of these yummy treats out of the room.
