When I was little, I attended some sort of wedding reception or shower or something of the like where favors are given. The favors were little bags of white candies. I tried the candy and loved it, only to never ever have them again. As an adult, I occasionally thought about that candy and what it could possibly be. What was that wondrous and mysterious candy of magical goodness?!
Oreo White Chocolate Pudding Cookies
Source: Twos Peas and Their Pod
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 (3.4 oz) package white chocolate instant pudding mix (Note: I used cookies 'n creme pudding mix)
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose Gold Medal flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups chopped Oreos
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
1 package M&Ms (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
2. Using a mixer, beat together butter and sugars until creamy. Add in pudding mix, eggs, and vanilla extract. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in the Oreos and white chocolate chips.
3. Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, or until slightly golden around the edges and set. Remove cookies from oven and let cool on baking sheet for two minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely.
