The original recipe I used had chocolate chips in it, but I decided to mix it up and put in Oreos. And it worked out great!!
Taste: Very vanilla-y with a great oreo taste
Texture: Really moist
Would I make this again?: Yes! They are delicious and easy.
Vanilla Pudding Oreo Cookies
Adapted from: Two Peas and Their Pod
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3.4 oz. package vanilla instant pudding mix
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 crushed oreos
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat and set aside.
Using a mixer, beat together butter and sugars until creamy. Add in pudding mix, eggs, and vanilla extract. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in the oreo pieces.
Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until slight golden and set. Remove cookies from oven and let cool on baking sheet for two minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely.
