Gingerbread Pudding Cookies

A few weeks ago I participated in a Cookie Week with Nikki from Chef in Training.  These gingerbread cookies are what I brought to share on her blog.  I had to share them with you here too.  They were absolutely delicious and disappeared so fast from my cookie jar.  You can see my original post here.

This time of year I like to bake lots and lots of cookies.  Well, really I like to bake cookies anytime of the year.  But at least during the holidays, people don’t look at you funny when you bake 12 different kinds in one month:-)

It’s no surprise around here that I adore making pudding cookies.  They have quickly become my favorite go to cookie.  It all began with these Peanut Butter Pudding Cookies and now I just can’t stop.  So when I found Gingerbread pudding at the store, I just had to make cookies again with some cinnamon and white chocolate chips…because that combo totally says Christmas to me.  (I found the gingerbread pudding and the cinnamon chips at Walmart on a holiday stand.)

Pudding in a cookie makes them so soft and chewy.  They are the best right out of the oven when the center is still slightly underdone.  After they sit for a few minutes the centers will set up and leave them all chewy and delicious.  These ones have just a slight hint of gingerbread…enough to say bring on the holidays!!!

      I bought it at Walmart about a month ago, but I saw it at Meijer just the other day. They had 3 different holiday mixes…of course I bought all 3 to bake with:-) My fingers are crossed for you to find it!!! And Target always gets me to for more things I didn’t need!!!

    Has anyone used an alternative to gingerbread pudding for this recipe ? Vanilla pudding? With ginger added? I have the cinnamon chips but can’t find gingerbread pudding anywhere. Or any othe amazing cookie ideas with cinnamon chips??

      You can use any flavor pudding you like in these cookies if you can’t find the gingerbread. Unfortunately it is a seasonal flavor and not every store carries it. Adding some extra cinnamon and ginger would help achieve that flavor. White chocolate pudding would be great with the cinnamon chips too :-)
