Pudding Cookies Recipe

Pudding Cookies

These pudding cookies have been a huge hit at our house this week. On Tuesday my kids needed to take some cookies to a class. I made this recipe using vanilla pudding and chocolate chips. One of my kids said, “They won’t even know they’re gluten-free.” All the cookies were eaten and the report I got was that the kids (teens) really liked them.The picture shows my most recent version of these cookies with chocolate pudding and white morsels. The kids think these are fabulous, and they don’t have to eat gluten-free.

I recently found this recipe at Delightfully Gluten Free. I made one small change and I’m including the combination of flours that I used.

    Linda, I made these today and they ROCK! I used chocolate pudding with chocolate chips. I posted about it on my blog. :)

    Thanks for a great recipe! I did change the flour mix around b/c I had some that needed to be used.
