Pudding Snickerdoodle Cookies

I have been CRAVING some snickerdoodle cookies for months now!!
I remember eating these all the time when I was little girl, My favorite part was rolling them in the sugar and cinnamon.  I honestly can’t remember the last time I actually baked them let alone actually have one.
Now that I have finally discovered my new passion for pudding cookies!  I decided to try and find a recipe for Pudding Snickerdoodles.  I found this recipe and I knew right away it was winner.  So I got busy and started making these.
They were a big hit!  They tasted just how I remember them when I was a little girl.
And if you haven’t jumped on the cookie pudding wagon, then you must start now!
 Don’t they look gorgeous!  They are perfectly round, fluffy moist and every single bite you get blasted with yummy sugar and cinnamon.

  2. Oh snickerdoodles, the most comforting of all comfort foods :) I love the pudding in this recipe. I bet it makes them so deliciously chewy. We’ve been making snickerdoodles with brown butter and it has totally elevated them to a new level!

  3. I should try the brown butter method…thats sounds delicious!

  4. These sound delicious! But I’m wondering, is the package of pudding the smaller size or the larger size? Thanks!

  5. Sorry I should clarify, Its the smaller box.
