  2. hsvihl

    I have a box of lemon flavored instant pudding. I am going to try using that instead of vanilla.

    1. Shelly

      I wonder if sugarfree pudding mix would work?

    2. Lyn


      Hi Shelly - I checked on line with an University Extension Office. Sugar free will not work as well - they will not stay together as well. With any food questions, I google and the go a very reputable source.

  21. Katie

    These look amazing!!!

  22. Carly

I am sure this is definitely a people pleaser, am I right? Sounds like a cute thing to make for someone's birthday - add their favorite candy bar! Love it!-Carlywww.createliveblog.com

    I make a cookie VERY similar to these with pudding! Everyone always LOVES them :)What I love about them is that even a week later (not that they typically last that long in my house) they are STILL soft and moist!Haute To Sew

  28. Katie

    I think I could have eaten a thousand of these at your house the other week. I think I settled for eating just three. Yum! Thanks for sharing the recipe! I will be making these sometime soon!

  29. Hollie - TheSevenYearCottage.com

    I will have to try!

  30. Mandy Saunders

    Just a question... do you make up the pudding before adding it to the butter and sugar, or are you only adding the powder that comes in the box?

    Mandy Saunders

  31. Jerri

    Just wanted you to know that I made these and am sharing them on my blog today with a link back to you.

  32. Shannon

    Hello! These look amazing. I want to make them today, and I'm wondering if you know about how many cookies this recipe makes?


    Shannon @ Imperfectly-Inspired.blogspot.com

  33. Shannon

    I just published a post about my experience with this recipe. I hope you can check it out. THANK YOU!Shannon @ Imperfectly-Inspired

  34. Michael Ann

    I made the cheesecake white choc chip ones last week and my 15 yr old went crazy for them. We all liked them, but him especially and he wants me to make more right away ;-) They would be good with white choc chips and macadamia nuts :-)

  35. Tinuke B

    Sorry if I'm being really dumb but what is pudding mixture? I'm English and we use the word pudding to describe any desserts!?
    Is this like an angel delight creamy textured kind of thing? You know, kind of custardy!? Really really want to make these cookies! Anyone know the UK alternative?

    1. Vel

      You can find jelloo pudding mix in the baking isle of any grocery store. Good Luck!

  36. Chef in Training

    @Tinuke B That is not a dumb question at all! Feel free to ask anything! The pudding mix stated in the recipe is talking about the Jello Instant Pudding package. It is just a powder. You don't make up the pudding, just leave it as is and add the powder when it says to add the pudding package in the recipe. Does that help? E-mail me at chefintraining.recipes@gmail.com if you have any more questions. I would love to help in any way I can!

  37. Tinuke B

    Thanks for your help! Gotta love Amazon.co.uk, they stock the jello pudding mix (for any UK readers, I think it looks like its similar to our angel delight, but will confirm once I've recieved it!!)

  38. Sarah

    Can I use sugar free pudding and cake mix?

  39. Deb

    I make some cookies like this at Christmas but I use chocolate pudding and Andes mint chips. Yummy!!

  40. Anonymous

    my daughter took these to the fair for 4H, but only received a blue ribbon for them---but we think they are awesome---can also substitute chocolate pudding and white chocolate chips.

  41. Sarah

    This recipe is AMAZING. I made the dough with regular sized M&Ms, probably ate seven cookies raw, then five baked in one night. The next day I swear I ate half of the batch. They are so delicious and addictive! Making them again soon for a coworker who just had a baby.

  42. Kelli

    I just came across your website. You baking looks delicious! This recipe is my hands down favorite cookie ever! My mom found it on the side of jello pudding in the 70s, I bet yours did too! I have never seen it on another website or blog before, how fun!!! I made all sort of different variations of them too! Here is a link to them on my blog http://www.katieleehome.com/blog/?tag=health

  43. Meghan

    Oh my! Just made these with chocolate chips. Sooooo yummy and soft. Thanks for the recipe!

  44. Anonymous

    These are so good but I can't eat too many, they have a lot of sodium per serving (2898.5mg).

  45. Erin @ Dutch Girl Diary

    I have this recipe (from my mom's recipe box) and I gave it to my sister. We came up with a too-die-for alteration!!!!!! Sub a box of chocolate instant pudding instead of vanilla and add a couple heaping tablespoons of good dutch cocoa ... Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies. Cures anything that ails ya!!!

  46. Kami

    Thank you so much for this recipe! I have been looking for a chocolate chip cookie recipe that would actually work and not turn flat. We live very close to the mountains so it has been hard to find a recipe that works, but I now have one!! Thanks so much! They are delicious!

  47. Anna

    Just wondering if the photo is of your cookies, and if so, did you flatten the balls before you baked them? I just made these today, I live in KC so average altitude, and mine are still incredibly puffy and spongy. They are good, but they don't look like the ones in your picture at all!

    1. Taylor

      Mine turned out like puffy balls as well! No flattening! Did we find out what went wrong?

    2. Jill

      Mine too - I even tried flattening them and still no luck. They taste ok, but look awful. What type of flour did you use??

    3. Chef in Training

      I use All-Purpose flour. It could be due to altitude differences. Try using 2 cups flour next time and see if that helps. Add more as needed :)

    4. Jennifer

      I had the same problem. Did anyone figure out what went wrong? I followed the recipe...? I'm near Chicago so I don't think altitude played a role.

    5. Traci Melnick


      Mine stayed in ball form as well. Batter was very dry when I mixed it. They tasted fine but look bad.

    6. Chef in Training

      Where you cooking at high or low altitude? Sometimes this can affect how the cookie spreads. I cook at high altitude so if cooking at lower altitude you will want to increase butter or decrease flour.

  48. Chef in Training

    Hey Anna! Yes, the photo is one I took of my cookies. No, I didn't flatten them before I baked them. That is weird your cookies turned out like that. I'll look into it a little more. E-mail me at chefintraining.recipes at gmail.com and let's see if we can't get to the bottom of it.

    1. Terri Gilson

      Had the same issue with cookies not flattening- in Calgary, AB Canada and we're high altitude as you are!

  49. Anonymous

    Does any one know if you have to make the pudding like you regularly would or just add the powder mix of the pudding? I want to make these but I don't want to mess them up!

  50. Corinna

    Hey, wait a minute... this is the exact same recipe you posted recently for Cake Batter Pudding Cookies... minus the cake batter.

    So, which would you say is the yummier recipe?


  51. Renee

    I used this recipe before to make cookies for a cookie bake off and won first place. They are sooo good!

    1. Geri

      OMG these look incredible!! If they come out like puffy balls they must be so light!!!

  52. Laura

    Has anyone ever tried this recipe with sugar free pudding? I just thought I'd ask before I try it.

  53. EBPitcher

    A technical question: could cook-n-serve pudding be used in these or any of your other pudding cookies? I accidentally bought a box of cook-n-serve and am looking for something to do with it.

    1. Molly

      I was wondering the same thing. Did you happen to try it?

  54. Tammy

    Question: Which type of flour are you using, all-purpose or self-rising? Thanks! these sound wonderful i am making them now and hoping i pick the right flour!

  55. Cristin

    this is probably a stupid question and I'm probably going to kick myself after I ask it HOWEVER, with the flower part where you have 2-1/4 cups flower - does that mean 2 cups and 1/4 cup all together or does it mean TWO scoops of 1/4 cups(If that makes sense). Thanks!

    1. Chef in Training

      it means 2 cups and another 1/4 cup all together.

  56. Ashley

    I just made this recipe and the cookies turned out Delicious!! I followed the recipe exactly and used 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips. My family loved these cookies and i will definitely be making these again! (:
    Thanks So Much

  57. Teresa

    MMMMMmmmmm!!! These cookies are SO good. Saw the recipe on Pinterest and had to try them. YUM! Thank you! Note that recipe worked at altitude too (5200 ft.).

  58. Sarah

    These are the best cookies I have ever tasted! I just fed them to my husband and he said the same thing! I even used sugar free fat free pudding, and the light butter, and they are incredible!

  59. Joei

    This recipe is nearly identical to a 2004 recipe for Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies by Debbi Borsick on allrecipes.com. The only difference between her recipe and this one is 1/4 cup less butter...

    1. Chef in Training

      Thank you for the information. I did not get this recipe from her and I know there are many versions of it out there. Whenever I use or adapt a recipe from someone I site the source. This is the one that has been in my family for years and it is delicious! :) Thanks for stopping by and have a great day :)

  60. Joy

    I have been using vanilla pudding in my cookies for years. My aunts cookies were always the best and she used the pudding! I also take them out of the oven before they overly brown. Always make a double batch and they r usually gone in no time!

  61. Diana

    Ty for sharing....can t wait to try them...

  62. Melissa

    Just made these cookies and used the Pumpkin Spice Instant Pudding mix and white chocolate chips and they were Awesome!

  63. Sarah

    Made pudding cookies for the first time this weekend and we LOVE them! Made half with the standard chocolate chip recipe, but added 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice to the other half (w/ choc chips as well) and they turned out fabulous! Will definitely be making these again.... as well as others. :)

  64. Amy

    My new favorite cookie recipe !! Thanks so much for sharing!

  65. Lorraine

    Just finished making these, mine were not flat either, never the less the were awesome cookies!

  66. Lael

    This sounds delish! I have a silly question though...would this work for pre-packaged cookie mixes? I've got a box of the already packaged ones from costco that has like 6 sugar cookie mixes in it. Could I just follow the directions on the box and then add in the vanilla pudding? thanks!!!

  67. Rachel

    Tey are in the oven... ^-^

  68. Karie

    Thank you for sharing! I can not wait to try these yummy looking cookies!

  69. Gay H.

    We've made these cookies at our home for many, many years and they are our favorite. We use chocolate pudding to make chocolate chocolate chip cookies. In fact, we served these cookies with milk at my daughter's wedding instead of doing a groom's cake. My daughter doesn't like wedding cake and her husband LOVES it. so the wedding cake was for him and the cookies for her. I had some great friends who each made a batch of them so I didn't have to do all the work myself! Your post brings back some wonderful memories!

  70. Jennifer

    Shoot, I'm in the process of making these with my son....HELP!!! How much flour??? 2 and 1/4 cups or 1/2 cup???

    1. Chef in Training

      2 1/4 cups flour :)

    2. Jennifer

      Thanks. I assumed that is what you meant and I did that amount. Curious, why baking soda and not baking powder? My cookies didn't turn out. The taste was there, but they never spread out. It was a bummer. Not sure what I did wrong.

  71. Amanda Smith

    I just made these with quartered mini snickers and they are phenomenal....will be using them for a christmas cookie exchange/gifts....thanks a bunch! Happy holidays to you and yours!

  72. Tiffany

    I just made these with my kids, like some of the other posts they taste great but look completely different than your picture. Ours are very puffy too. I guess I'll play around with the flour next time.

  73. Lani

    Hi I was going to make these for christmas so I need to know how many does this recipe make?

    1. Chef in Training

      this recipe makes about 3 dozen

    2. Lani

      Thank You!!! I am making them tonight!!

  74. Sadie

    Hands down the best chocolate chip cookies ive made, ever! I have been looking for the perfect recipe for years and this is it!

  75. Carol

    Being an "older" lady, I accidentally used 1 teasp. baking powder instead of the baking soda and they turned out super good....ate everyone nearly by myself and in making the recipe again, I realized that it called for soda so made them this way and they are also good but spread more...thinner cookie; the ones with the b. powder looked like little tea cakes. I also cut the 1/4 c. of granulated sugar and did not miss it. I did roll some of them in sugar. Used parchment paper on my cookie sheets and baked 10 minutes. Love them....either way. Thought you might want to know....

  76. Ben

    Loved this recipe.... Hate crunchy cookies and this did the trick.... Looking forward to more recipes....

  77. Rosanna

    Hi, i was so excited to make these but when I did they didnt come out flat and pretty like the picture. Not sure what I did wrong. They do taste amazing. I rolled them into balls and that's how it baked. I used margarine instead of butter, could that be it?

    1. Jessica

      Same thing happened to me, and I used regular butter. Looks like a lot of people have had the same issue, but no solution. :(

  78. Amanda

    I tried this recipe and my cookies turned out shaped like balls, instead of flat and they're not as soft and most as this recipe description claims. Any idea what went wrong? Thanks!

    1. Jessica

      Mine turned out the same way :(

  79. Amy

    Found this recipe on Pinterest and had to try it. I'm a total sucker for a good chocolate chip cookie but hated when homemades got hard and crunchy. These are awesome! They were flying off the cooling rack faster than I could get them on! I'll never make cookies the "old way" ever again, thank you!

  80. Vanessa

    These look great! Do you know if the consistency changes if you use shortening instead of butter? Also, how do you get your cookies to be perfectly consistent in size? My usual cookie recipe, I flatten the tops so they are not so puffy.

  81. Amanda

    I'd love it if you came up with an oatmeal chocolate chip pudding cookie recipe! I'd love to add some oats to my chocolate chip pudding cookies and I don't know how much to add vs. flour. Thanks!

    1. Ali

      I made these for the first time last night, since it's a few people at works last day. I have never been able to make such a fluffy soft cookie! I topped them with a few mini eggs to give it an easter flair. They turned out so amazing, I will be saving this recipe for sure.

      I like Amanda's note above about making them into oatmeal chocolate chip... yum.

  82. christine

    I tried this recipe today and they turned out great. Thanks for the recipe and I am so jealous of the beautiful cookie photo.

    (I had to blog about making these :) http://kharise.wordpress.com/2013/04/01/pudding-chocolate-chip-cookies/).

  83. Catherine

    pudding cookie recipe

  84. Donna

    ok.. so i was looking at this recipe.. i'm always looking for new recipe sites to explore (it's annoying when commentors dont indicate theirs other than through nickname but not completely:( )

    anyhow. so my question is: other than pudding in the mix, i dont see much difference between regular recipe choc chip cookies and these? i know pudding in a cake mix makes it "moister" and i GET that part, but is that ALL there is of a difference to doing this? i add a box of pudding?

  85. Michelle

    These cookies are yummy!!! Is it possible to use regular pudding mix vs. instant?

  86. Brandy

    I used banana pudding and it was awesome! This time I'm using banana again but with peanut butter chips instead of chocolate.

  87. Natalie

    When you say pudding mix, is that a self saucing pudding mix? I'm in Australia and I'm trying to work out what to use. Pic please?

  88. Helen Bozic

    Hi I have a similar question to Natalie .... I'm in the UK and I'm not sure we can get Jello pudding so easily , I'm wondering what kind of pudding it is? Is it like a custardy type thing or more like instant whip?


    1. Chef in Training

      Its a powdered mix that is like an instant whip. Hope that helps let me know if you have any further questions about it.

  89. Jennifer Clark

    I want to make these for a cookie exchange. How many does 1 batch make?

    1. Chef in Training

      roughly 3 dozen :)

    2. Tara

      I have a few packets of cook and serve pudding that I would like to use up, will that work for this recipe, or is instant pudding best?

  90. Chelsea

    I made these last night and what a treat!

    A few tips. Make sure the butter is room temp, before you cream it about 66 degrees (Cool to the touch, but easily spreadable). Also, chill your dough in the fridge before you bake.. While this will inevitably lengthen your baking time (2 hours in the fridge = 15-18 min baking at 350) You get the PERFECT chewy cookie every time!

  91. Jessica

    These are thee best chocolate chip cookies. Ever. Period. I will never use another recipe! Thank you for sharing!

  92. SouthBay Baker

    My daughter and I wanted to make these but bought lemon pudding by accident. I had some white chocolate on hand and boy, are they good. I had to get them out of the house before I ate them all myself. I don't even like white chocolate! Thanks for the inspiration, I think.

  93. Kali H

    This is my new go to chocolate chip cookie recipe. Before I found this recipe it didn't matter what I did my cookies would NEVER turn out. But these are fluffy and YUMMY as hell! Thank you!!!

  94. Amy Sader-Brown

    Hi :) I made these tonight, but used cinnamon chips and pumpkin instant pudding (also experimented with coconut oil for the butter). They turned out super delicious. Thanks for the great recipe. I bet there are a million different pudding/chip combos that would be fantastic!

  95. Jamie

    Hi. For the Aussies out there - butter sticks add to around 180grams, pudding mix I used 1 packet of Cottees instant pudding & flour I used Plain. My cookies stayed chunky & didn't flatten like in the picture. I don't think the baking soda is necessary. I'm going to try cooking these again without the soda & see if that works. They are yummy but not as nice as they look in the picture. Thanks for the recipe.

  96. Tooba

    Hello i would like to know can we use cutard powder inf we cant find instant pudding packagae? Plz let me know thanx! :)


    My favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe came from the Jello pudding box. It's wonderful. I been using it for years....

  98. Shellie


    I *LOVE* your blog and recipes! I do have a question though. I follow your cookie recipes perfectly but they never look like yours. What kind of butter do you use? Crisco? Margarine? Real butter? I would love to know how to make them look like yours! ;) THANK YOU!!

  99. Ashley


    I've made these twice now. They are absolutely delicious! They're definitely my go-to-recipe now. :)

    However, the first time I made these, they did not spread at all. (I live in Texas, if that matters any.)
    It wasn't a huge issue for me because the taste was just so great, but I did hope that I could make them look a little better.

    The second time I made them, I used a spatula to flatten them right before putting them in the oven. They came out great! Same awesome taste, and they looked like a traditional cookie.

    Thanks for the great recipe!

  100. Sherri

    I made these tonight. They taste good but didn't spread they stayed in the ball form... Any idea why?

  101. Amber Bigelow

    If I wanted to make them chocolate chocolate chip would I just add the instant chocolate pudding or chocolate pudding and cocoa powder if so how much of each should I add?

  102. Barbara

    Can these cookies be frozen and how

  103. Heather


    I have made these cookies a couple of times and they have been a hit! I'm making them again this week. I used butterscotch pudding last time!

  104. Misty Wilson

    Are you suppose to make the pudding mix or just put the powder in?

    1. Chef in Training

      just the powder

  105. Nicole

    Is the flour all purpose or self rising?

    1. Chef in Training

      all purpose

  106. eLLA

    can I use cook and serve pudding for my cookie receipe as it called out for instant pudding

    1. Chef in Training

      no, it needs to be instant

  107. Jacqui Young

    Hi, do you have a British substitute for vanilla pudding. I'm not sure what you mean. Is it similar to Angel Delight, or instant blancmange ?

  108. Hanan

    Best cookies ever

  109. Carolyn Edwards

    what kind of flour self rising plain or all purpose

  110. Thelma Knebel


    I am going to make these. Look great.

  111. Natalie

    Hi, I was wondering if I could chill the dough for a bit before baking them. I normally do this with cookie dough, as it becomes less sticky. Also, when beating mix, do you beat at medium speed? Thanks!

    I have been making my cookies like this for years since my sons we're young and my youngest is 35

  113. Dave Muscella

    Add 3/4 cup Raisinettes to this and you have my recipe.

  114. Cathy Lumbert

    I've had this recipe for over thirty years good with butterscotch and chocolate pudding

  115. Tess Jarvis

    Made these with white chocolate pudding. They were divine, and still soft the next day. They lasted 5 days in my house and the last few were still delicious. My new favorite recipe.

    This recipe is one of the best I have tried as far as chocolate chips cookies go. I am going to try with white chocolate and macadamia nuts the next time. I think it will be awesome with these ingredients.

  117. Linda

    Made them today and they are delicious without being over sweet. Love how soft they stay!

  118. Bev A.


    These sound wonderful. Can you substitute the flour listed for a Gluten Free flour mix? If so are the measurements the same?

  119. Tiffany


    I actually had this exact recipe from a recipe book that my mother gave me back in 2000, they were excellent cookies! I have since tweaked and altered the recipe. You can definitely make them sugar free as well, but they come out slightly puffy when making the sugar free version. They are absolutely great!

    I made enough to last us 2 weeks but they were so good they were gone in 4 days.

  121. Roxanna Royal


    I love these cookies, I will be making them today.

  122. Carol

    Several years ago I was given this same recipe by Santa Claus best cookies ever.

  123. Holly hopkins

    Try them n with chocolate pudding too!! Chocolate chocOlathe chip cookies are awesome!!! I've made these for yeara, my Grandma passed the recipe on... can't go wrong

  124. Brooke


    Cookies did not turn out like this. Taste isn't bad... but they stayed almost in a ball shape they didn't flatten out. Wouldn't make again sadly

      I've noticed if cooking at lower altitudes, you may need to add an additional 1/4 cup butter to the list of ingredients. I don't know if this could have been your problem, but that is one thing I can think of. So sorry about your troubles!

    Made them and they tasted amazing. But my coockies puffed up that it almost teasted like a bread coockie. Any tips on how I can make this recepie a success?

    Made these and they turned out quite tasty. They don't look quite like your pictures, they are more rounded on top but the flavour is good! Next time I will try white chocolate chips and dried cranberries. I think that will be a nice combination! Love your recipes and I have pinned a number of them!

    1. Chef in Training

      I've noticed if cooking at lower altitudes, you may need to add an additional 1/4 cup butter to the list of ingredients. That should give the same spread as seen in the pictures. I don't know if this could have been your problem, but that is one thing I can think of. So sorry about your troubles! So glad to hear you liked them! I have a white chocolate craisin cheesecake one right here if you are interested :) https://www.chef-in-training.com/2012/11/white-chocolate-craisin-cheesecake-pudding-cookies/

    I have been making chocolate chip cookies with the pudding in the mix
    For the past 10 years. They always get rave reviews. The pudding is def. the secret ingredient.

  128. Ronda

    This is the best chocolate chip cookies mix I've found! I'm a gluten free celiac and just converted the recipe to gluten free and my family just loved them! Thank you.

  129. Sam

  132. Joanne

    I got this recipe 40+ years ago from a friends mother in law...we've always called them gramma korrko cookies

  133. Donna

    Can I make these as bars? I'm feeling lazy!

  134. Katy

    Do you use salted or unsalted butter

  135. Lesliegh

    Ii make these with almond flour and sugar free pudding mix turned great!!

  136. Emma


    Is there any differance between instant pudding mix and regular when baking these cookies?

    1. Chef in Training

      Yes, it needs to be instant. The other will not turn out.

  137. CAROL


    Can you leave out the pudding mix? Will it still taste fine?

  138. Lydia


    I noticed salt was not in the recipe. I added 1/4 t and they came out great although mine didn't spread out during baking.

  139. Diane

    Does it work with Gluten Free Flour?

  140. Melissa

    These are the best cookies!! Awesome recipe. Made at least 40 in one batch. I did mint chocolate chip and they were gone like that!!

  141. Preet

    Hi, is it possible to make these cookies without egg? My son is alllergic to eggs.. thx

  142. Dave H.

    Awesome cookies! Make with chocolate pudding and add pecan pieces for great flavor! Yummy!

  143. Carly


    I made these, they are very soft, but they could use a little salt.

  144. Santa Fe

    Hallelujah, a high-altitude recipe! Thank you.

  145. Barbara

    These cookies were no different than any other chocolate chip cookie. Not sure what the whole package of pudding mix was for! Did not Improve this cookie.

  146. Leah

    READ THIS BEFORE MAKING!!! Be sure to read the note about butter all the way at the end, after the recipe, BEFORE you mix everything up. That butter note needs to be put at the top. And 8-10 minutes in the oven is nonsense. It took 20 minutes. I'm assuming the timing and temp was based on a different altitude as is the butter.

  147. Roxanne


    Way too many chocolate chips!!! It was really hard to roll the cookies because there were too many chocolate chips! Only use about 3/4 cup of chocolate chips instead of a cup and a half!

  148. Bakingwithcovid


    If you, like us, were only able to buy self-rising flour as a result of shutdown panic buyers:
    Substitute 2 1/4 c all-purpose and 1 t baking soda with 2 1/4 c self-rising and 1 t baking POWDER. Bake an extra 4ish minutes.
    Consistency is a little more fluffy and cookies come out a little lighter in color but they're nearly identical otherwise.

  149. Pauline

    I wish I kept track of how many patches of these cookies I have made. They turn out delicious every time! I am making a double patch right now with M & M's

  150. RC


    Since finding this recipe, I have tossed all other chocolate chip cookie recipes! I like to use the cheesecake pudding in these. Working on trying some of your other pudding cookie recipes! Glad I found your site!

  151. Julie

    This recipe is very similar to my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe on the package of Ghirardelli chocolate chips. I'm going to make it this weekend with a package of Godiva white chocolate vanilla bean pudding! I've used it before mixed in with boxed cookie mix & it makes the best flavor!

  152. Lydia

    No salt??
