White Chocolate Lemon Oatmeal Pudding Cookies

My husband Jeff is often the springboard for my baking ideas. A few weeks ago, I asked him what he thought might go well with a lemon pudding cookie. I already knew I wanted white chocolate chips and almond extract in them, but he suggested I add rolled oats as well. At first I questioned […]

Ultimate Oreo Cream Pudding Cookies

    I call these pudding cookies “Ultimate Oreo” because they are loaded with hints of our favorite Nabisco cookie. They have Oreo cookies and cream pudding mix, vanilla and almond extracts, chopped Oreos, and two kinds of chocolate chips (milk and white). Just one bite gives you that ultimate Oreo experience, in a cookie made […]

Chocolate Valentine Pudding Cookies

Did you happen to see the Nestle Valentine chips that were out this month? They were a mixture of half dark chocolate and half red vanilla chips. My mom gave me a bag a few days after Valentine’s Day, but that didn’t stop me from experimenting with them. I took my mom’s pudding chip cookie […]

Mega Stuf Oreo Pudding Cookies

Have you seen the new limited edition Oreos out? They are Mega Stuf Oreos, (as in mega filling for those lovers of sweet sugary Oreo centers). The package only sat in my pantry for two days before I decided to bake with them. I made my favorite pudding chip cookie recipe, doubling all ingredients. Chocolate […]

Big Batch M&M Best Brownies

I will admit that it is an excellent recipe, especially if you are looking for something to throw together quickly in one bowl without a stand mixer. My only qualm about them is that the original recipe does not make a whole lot, just […]

Slow Cooker Jambalaya Soup

In case you are eating in this Valentine’s Day and are looking for some inspiration, I have for you some slow cooker jambalaya soup. It is packed with protein in the form of chicken, hot sausage links, and shrimp. With just the right amount of spice, it gives off some heat but not too much. […]

Cherry Chocolate Cream Cheese Pudding Cookies

A few days ago, I shared with you my recipe for cherry vanilla chocolate chip pudding cookies. This version adds a burst of richness, because I used cream cheese in place of half of the butter. (I doubled the batch so I wouldn’t have half a block of cream cheese in the fridge).  These pudding […]

Cherry Vanilla Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I have some very festive pudding cookies to share. They use the basic pudding chip cookie recipe as a backdrop, except cherry extract is substituted for the vanilla and several squeezes of red food coloring gel are added. Milk chocolate chips accent these pretty treats, reminding one of chocolate covered […]
