M & M Pudding Cookies! {New Recipe}

I know we're getting warmer temps, so save this awesome recipe for a rainy day if you must!

But DO make it - these are terrific and soft cookies...and aren't they beautiful too?

They get a lot of attention at my farmer's market baked goods stand. 


Imagine all the fun you can having using seasonal M & M's...these would be perfect at Christmastime with red and green ones, or July 4th, with red, white & blue ones, Valentine's Day with red, pink and white...etc. etc. 

With all the other sugars in this tasty treat, I lowered the white sugar just a tad, otherwise, this is a perfect recipe as is.

The brown sugar always gives a caramel-y flavor that I adore in cookies! 

Thanks much to my sweet friend Kitty, at Kitty's Kozy Kitchen, whose taste buds are in 'sync' with mine all the time, for sharing this great recipe.

2-1/2 c. flour
1-1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. butter, softened
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
(I decreased white sugar from 3/4 c.) 
1 box (4-serv. size) vanilla instant pudding
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. M & M milk chocolate candies
1/2 - 1 c. white chocolate baking chips, optional 

Preheat oven to 350. In medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt; 
set aside. 

In a large bowl, beat butter, brown & white sugars with mixer on medium for about 1 minute or until fluffy.  Add in dry pudding mix; combine.  Beat in eggs, one at a time, just until mixture is smooth.  Stir in vanilla.  On low, gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture until well blended.  Stir in M & M's and white chocolate chips by hand. 

Drop dough by heaping tablespoonsful about 2" apart onto UNgreased cookie sheets, or parchment-lined cookie sheets. 

Bake 10 - 11 minutes or until light brown.  Cool 2 minutes on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack.  After cooled completely, store in airtight container at room temp. These cookies freeze nicely. 

Yield: about 3 dozen
