Hooray!!!! It’s time for cookies!!!!
While vanilla and chocolate pudding are fan favorites, you can’t forget how great pistachio pudding really is. I swear that once they try these soft cookies you will be hooked with the nice subtle pistachio pudding flavor and white chocolate chips.
We are in week 3 of school and have already had a black eye (from a fall), a bit hand, and a Hand, Foot, and Mouth warning. Here’s hoping that Hunter (and the rest of us!) don’t get Hand, Foot & Mouth since it’s ‘just’ in the preschool, but not in his specific class room (yet!).
And, let’s not forget, that we have a Hurricane currently tracking our way. We are still quite a few days out from feeling the effects of it, but I could still do without it wrecking havoc on our Labor Day weekend.
I can’t wait to just get through the rest of the week and past the weekend. Let’s hope that we are spared from illness and a Cat 3 storm.

What is in Pistachio White Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies?
Like your typical chocolate chip cookie recipe, there is butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, flour, salt, and chocolate chips. This recipe features pistachio pudding mix and white chocolate chips. The addition of a few drops of green food coloring helps give the cookies a brighter green color.
How do to make these cookies
Sift together the flour, baking soda; set aside. Beat the butter and sugar using a stand mixer or a hand beater. Once that is fluffy, beat in the pudding mix. From there add in the eggs, vanilla extract, and food coloring. Beat in the flour and baking soda. Lastly, mix in the chocolate chips. Bake for about 8 minutes, until just set. Don’t let the cookies brown, it will ruin their pretty color.
How to freeze the cookie dough
I love making batches of chocolate chip pudding cookies in advance so that I can pull them out on a whim, without having to pull out the stand mixer right that moment. If you want to do the same, you prepare them up until you bake them. Roll them out, place them on a plate or lined baking sheet, and put in the freezer until solid. Once frozen, bag them up in a resealable plastic bag. Label with the date. Add another minute or 2 to the bake time when baking.
