Have you ever made banana pudding? The one that you layer pudding with bananas and Nilla wafer cookies?
Well, I did that in a cookie!
Ok. I didn’t layer anything. But I combined all those ingredients in a cookie.
It’s almost the same thing. Right?
I used a box of instant banana pudding mix in the cookie dough, then added in lots of crushed Nilla wafers and chopped up banana chips. The cookies are soft yet they have some texture from the banana chips. They are so good!
One Year Ago: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pretzel Cookies
Banana Pudding Cookies
Prep time: 10 minutes Bake time: 8 minutes
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 small package (3.4 oz.) banana instant pudding mix
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups flour
1 3.5 oz box Nilla wafer cookies, crushed
1 cup chopped dried banana chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, and instant pudding mix. Stir in the eggs and mix well. Add in the salt, baking soda, and flour stir until everything is well combined. Gently add in the crushed cookies and the chopped dried banana chips.
Using a medium-sized ice cream scoop, scoop out the dough onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Lightly flatten the cookies (you can do this with your hand, lightly sprayed with cooking spray, or with a piece of plastic wrap, or a latex-free glove- like I do). Bake in a preheated oven for 8 minutes, or until the tops are set and the edges are golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, move the cookies onto cooling racks and cool completely. Enjoy!
