My boys started school this week. Hallelujah. I love them to death but they were ready and so was I. They were starting to get bored and it was definitely time to go back. It is crazy to see how big both of my boys have gotten. They are both in a full day of school. I am not going to lie, it has been nice! It has given me the time I need to get stuff done during the day and hang out with them in the evenings. I wanted to make something fun for their lunches. I took my favorite pudding cookie recipe, added some cute sprinkles, white chocolate chips and cheesecake pudding. I think these were the best cookies that I have made to date. And sprinkles make everything better. 🙂

I knew that they would be perfectly soft and chewy because this is my favorite cookie base. But how did the cheesecake flavor come through? I gave one to my hubby and watched him eat and love this amazing cookie. Oh man that about killed me. So he said that under his supervision, I could have a tiny bite. One tiny bite? Ok I’ll take it!

They baked perfectly and stayed soft. My boys loved having them in their lunches. These were amazing and I know without a doubt, you will love them too!

  1. Hi, these look amazing! Just not too sure what cheesecake pudding mix is? I don’t think we have it here in the UK? What is it like? Thanks 🙂
    love your blog . Debbie, York,England

  2. Question: In this recipe, the pudding mix, is it instant or the to be cooked kind? Thanks for the recipes. They are great!! Sharon

  3. These look so good, and I would LOVE to give these a try, but I live in a really high altitude. Any changes you would recommend before I make the attempt?

  4. I made these today. OMGOSH!!! Amazing. My son had to eat them with his eyes closed and a smile on his face. My 16 yr old daughter tweeted about them!! My daughter’s friend called them heaven in a cookie. Delicious and so pretty too.

  5. So I just made these, they’re on the cooling rack right now, haven’t even tasted yet, but they smell amazing. Mine are way puffier, and not nearly as spread out and flat as yours, any ideas on what I may have done wrong?

      1. They tasted great, just puffier. I did “age” the cookie dough in the fridge for a few days, I read somewhere to do that to get really good flavor, not sure if that factored into the puffiness. Either way they tasted great, thanks for the recipe.

  6. I just made these for my co-workers birthday tomorrow. I plan to take them to work- but of course, I had my husband sample them. He had 4! Then….shamefully I say…I did, too. I keep justifying it by saying they were tiny cookies. Oh man- self control went out the window. GREAT cookies! Let’s hope the rest actually MAKE it to work tomorrow. Thank you for this recipe, Alyssa.

  7. I can only find the sugar free cheesecake pudding mix. Will this work? Dying to make these for my 7 year olds birthday on Sunday! 🙂

  8. Hii I really want to make these but can’t seem to find the cheesecake pudding mix.. Is there anything else I can use to replace the cheesecake pudding mix?

  9. I followed this recipe to the tee….they were absolutely yummy but the cookies didn’t look like yours. They didn’t spread. They sorta looked like small hockey pucks. I wonder if it had anything to do with the unsalted butter–next time I’ll use regular butter instead.

  10. These look great! I’m thinking of making them for “Cookie Monster’s cookies” for my son’s Sesame Street themed bday party- how far ahead do you think I could make them? Would they freeze well?
    I’m gonna have a million cupcakes and a 2 tier cake to make so I’m trying to plan out my baking schedule 🙂

    1. These are so yummy! I am not sure how they would freeze especially because you use a pudding mix in the dough so they are soft. :/

  11. I am a kindergarten teacher and am in charge of baking cookies for the WHOLE school next Tuesday! This will be such a fun cookie to bake for all these little ones! Thanks so much!!!:)

    My husband said, “these are hands down his favorite”. I added some butterscotch chips in as well. Every kid loves them and they are soooo attractive at any gathering. I have made these 3 times this summer! You must make these for a change from chocolate chip. The white chocolate is very decadent and stands out in this cookie and pudding mix makes them melt in your mouth.
