Red Velvet Pudding Cookies

So….I am at it again with the pudding cookies.  I have a true love for pudding cookies and the soft cookies that they produce.  With the holiday season right around the corner, I started brainstorming a fun and unique pudding cookie to do as handouts. Almost instantly, the thought “Red Velvet!” came to mind.  The end result was so pretty and delicious! MMM!

    Those sound awesome! I've made chocolate chip cookies with a packet of vanilla pudding and they look so perfect and beautiful every time. Nice and fluffy! I hadn't thought of trying a different kind of cookie with pudding. Thanks for sharing (via TT&J).

      do the pudding cookies have to stay refrigerated or can they be added to gift baskets before Christmas????

    Can we store these like normal cookies? Or are they to be handled differently because of the addition of the pudding package?

    I’m head over heels in love with these cookies and always get compliments when I make them. I’m trying to make the batter in advance and bake at a later date. How well will these freeze? How should I go about baking after being frozen? Thanks!
