White Chocolate Holiday Morsel Pudding Cookies

While in Target last week, I spotted a display of limited edition Nestle Toll House Holiday Morsels. They come in a 10 ounce bag (instead of the usual 12 ounces), and consist of semi-sweet morsels and red and green colored morsels. The red and green morsels are reminiscent of white chocolate and add a festive color to your average chocolate chip cookie.
For these cookies, I used my mom’s pudding chip cookie recipe. (She has been baking those cookies since she and my dad were newlyweds in the mid 1970’s). I love playing around with her pudding chip recipe and coming up with new concoctions. This time, I used white chocolate pudding mix in place of the french vanilla and used the Holiday morsels in place of the semi-sweet. Not only are these cookies deliciously soft; the Holiday morsels are the perfect decor to these festive Christmas treats.
