Introduction: How to Make Vanilla White Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

About: Hey y'all! My name is Lydia and I want to share my passion for cooking/baking with everyone!

Ever had a pudding cookie before? If you haven’t, these Vanilla White Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies are a treat! Now the pudding doesn’t make these cookies have pudding texture or flavor but it does make them incredible soft and they tasty like a cookie you would get from the bakery. I also used vanilla paste to add to the vanilla flavor, you can use vanilla extract, I just wanted the vanilla flavor to shine through. I love the amount of white chocolate chips in this recipe and I wish I would have added some chopped Macadamia nuts to them but if you do, I wont get mad.
