French Vanilla White Chocolate Pudding Cookies

I have made my fair share of white chocolate chip cookies over the years. It never seems to amaze me how small variations can make for a totally unique cookie.
In this recipe, I used a packet of instant french vanilla pudding mix in place of some white sugar. This recipe has less butter, one less egg, and less flour than my mom’s pudding chip cookies. They come out tall and fluffy yet dense and cakey at the same time. They have a nice crumb and thick texture, very sweet and extremely satisfying.
