Day 3 brings a cookie that is made with pudding. Yep, that delicious instant pudding that you find on the store shelf can be used to make cookies too! Awesome!

You are probably wondering why you should use pudding at all? Pudding is made up of flavors, sugar and usually cornstarch. This additional starch added to the cookie batter makes the dough less tough by reducing the gluten-to-starch ratio and produces a more tender texture. All of the pudding cookies I’ve made, Pistachio Cherry Meltaways and my Cookies and Cream Cookies, turned out to be some of the most flavorful, softest cookies that I’d ever baked! Yep, pudding is a winner!

These Chocolate Peppermint Pudding Cookies are easy to make and are filled with all the flavors associated with the holidays. They are super chocolaty with deliciously crunchy peppermint chips throughout. Who can pass up chocolate and peppermint? Well, I know for a fact, that kids and big kids (aka adults) snatch them up as soon as they come out of the oven so you might have to hide them if you want them to last.

These would be great cookies for Christmas gift giving or a cookie swap and they take less than 30 minutes to make. They were a big hit last year with all my friends and family and will definitely be on my must-bake holiday cookie list from now on!
