Vintage recipes are my absolute favorite, especially simple ones like this recipe for Pudding Cookies. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the more complicated dishes as well, but sometimes it’s nice to make something a little easier.

Pudding Cookies are made with Jell-O pudding and Bisquick, two ingredients I usually have in my kitchen. I have never thought to put them together, though, which is what makes these cookies so unique and delicious!

This recipe is new to me, but I tried it and loved it, so I thought others would too! It’s always nice to find new ways to use ingredients you might already have.

What Substitutions Can I Make?

This recipe can be changed based on your preferences and the ingredients you have available.

  • Butterscotch, vanilla, cheesecake, or pistachio pudding can be used instead.
  • Pancake mix can be used in place of Bisquick, which I found so interesting! Who would have thought you could make cookies with pancake mix? Very cool!
