Cake Batter Pudding Cookies

If you like soft cookies, go ahead and preheat the oven now. These are quick, easy, and chewy-sweet delicious. The original recipe is from Nikki over at Chef in Training.


1 1/2 sticks (or 3/4 cup) butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 small (3.4 oz) package instant vanilla pudding mix
3/4 cup yellow cake mix, dry
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
2-1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
sprinkles (I used candy-coated chocolate pieces, instead.)


Preheat oven to 350 F.
Stir together flour, salt and baking soda and set aside.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars together.
Add in pudding package and cake mix and beat until well blended.
Add eggs and vanilla and mix until smooth.
Add flour mixture slowly until well incorporated.
Mix in sprinkles.
Roll into 1″ balls and place on greased baking sheet.
Bake at 350 F for 10-12 minutes.

I yielded about 52 cookies. 

For those of you who aren't fans of soft cookies, you're in luck. I baked a couple dozen of these for a friend who's a "hard-cookie person" - you know the type :) Anyway I made those cookies a little smaller, and baked them for about 16 minutes. They were crispy and still delicious.
