Mini Eggs & Pudding Easter Cookies

Mini Eggs & Pudding Easter Cookies

Mini Eggs & Pudding Easter Cookies ~ I have made this basic recipe, using chocolate chips, for what seems like forever! I think I got it from my mom, but I am not sure where she discovered it or its origin.  Because of the somewhat unusual addition of a pudding mix to these cookies, I suspect the recipe may have come from a pudding company. Perhaps, at one time it was written on the package itself or found in a magazine or product insert.

Mini Eggs & Pudding Easter Cookies

I have made the Pudding Chocolate Chip version of this recipe since I was 12 or 13. They are so easy to make plus they are always moist, chewy and unbelievably delicious. Coincidentally, or probably not so coincidentally…as they both came from my mom, I also have a recipe for Pudding Oatmeal Cookies which are equally delicious.

I had recently bought a very, very large bag of mini eggs, under the guise of using them for Easter baking.  So, before I slowly eat the entire bag, I thought I should make at least one recipe using them…lol!

Mini Eggs & Pudding Easter Cookies

Over the years I have tried many cookie recipes. While most have been very good, in my mind, none have measured up to this basic recipe. All I did to make it Easter themed is to substitute roughly chopped mini eggs for the chocolate chips.
