Sure, homemade cookies are baked full of love and nostalgia, but there’s just something about treating yourself to a cookie from a bakery.
You know the kind: They’re enormous and soft, studded with chocolate-covered candies, pillowy and delicious down to the very last bite. Well, now the cookies you make at home can have that same irresistible, indulgent texture without the in-store mark-up. All you need is a packet of instant pudding mix.
Mixing your dough with this grocery store staple gives you those tooth-tender cookies that stay soft for days, as the blogger behind Averie Cooks discovered. But that doesn’t mean they’re light. The same secret ingredient deepens the flavor of your baked goods, while plenty of butter and brown sugar keeps them feeling like a tempting treat instead of a lightened-up alternative--and this time you get to choose which kind of M&M goes into the dough.
Just make sure you chill the dough before baking--and scoop sizeable spoonfuls onto your baking sheet--that’s what will keep your cookies thick and slightly chewy in the middle. (Or use any of our tips for the very best chocolate chip cookies of your life.)
Oh, and you might want to double the recipe. These are going to disappear overnight.
