    Yummy! These are almost exactly like the cookies I developed a couple of months ago. I'll have to try them sometime with 3/4 cup butter instead of the 1 cup to see how they taste that way!

    Wow….they look sweet, soft and delicious! Do they taste like a macaroon?

    I just made these! They are OH-SO-YUMMY! I didn't have a lot of white chocolate chips, so I did about half white, half semi-sweet. Thank you sooooo much for my new favorite cookie recipe!

    I'm not real big on almond extract, but I'm definitely going to try my hand at pudding cookies! I've never tried them!

    Just my luck…was searching for a recipe for pudding cookies. First batch out of the oven: 10 minutes baking time produced beautiful, rich, well-rounded cookies with nice rise, texture, and slight golden brown color. Delicious, thank you!I did use french vanilla pudding instead of cheesecake, margarine instead of butter, and used just the vanilla extract with one cup of Nestle dark chocolate chips.

    My son said these look amazing so I guess I'll have to try them. I would anyway :)

    Ok-I had to comment again…my daughter just made these and they are amazing! Yum! We used vanilla pudding and almond…oh boy! I wonder if I used chocolate if they would taste like an Almond Joy bar…

    I am a serious lover of almond flavor (I love maripan). These cookies are getting made tomorrow. Saturday with rain expected all day – yup, tomorrow I know what I will be doing.

    These cookies are AMAZING! When I first made them I didn’t have almond extract so I used raspberry instead and they were quite delightlful. The most recent combo I created that I LOVE is lemon pudding mix with lemon extract and white chocolate chips. Sooooo yummy! Thank you for posting this recipe, cookies will no longer be baked the way they used to be in my house from now on.

I made tiny cookies (about 3/4 tbls ea) and ended up with 72, great to divy out for cookie exchanges or lunches! I saw a comment about using lemon pudding and extract and sort of Frankenstein’d… 1 tsp vanilla, 1tsp lemon with the cheesecake pudding. O M G I’m in love! Thanks so much for the recipe!
