    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!

  6. Katie {Always, Katie}

    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!

    Oh, I need to make these ASAP. I LOVE almond flavor too. These look like perfection.

    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.

    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!

    I love your recepies!

  27. Anita

    Were can I find the package instant pudding dry???

    1. Chef in Training

      I just means the powder contents of the package, not prepared. I find it in the baking aisle next to the jello packages. I hope this helps

  28. Sarah

    These cookies are delightful. I would have liked a slightly more pronounced cheesecake flavor. Other than that, so good & we devoured them
