White Chocolate Cherry Pudding Cookies are soft and tender cookies filled with white chocolate and festive cherries!
Each year, I make about twelve dozen different cookies for Christmas. They range from buckeye cookies to baklava bites. I know that sounds crazy. If you want to know why I do that, it’s because I’m way too indecisive and cannot choose which cookies to make; so I make them all. I’d love to shorten my list, but I just don’t know how.
I love pudding cookies. I make a mean turtle pudding cookie that goes quickly every time I make them. The pudding makes the cookies bake up so soft and so moist. For this particular cookie I used white chocolate pudding (vanilla would work just fine). I added festive dried cherries and sweet white chocolate chips to these cookies. They are easy and quick. Perfect to give away as gifts or to munch on all year round. This dough is very forgiving. You can add nuts or different chips if you prefer.
These cookies do not take long to bake up. Try to make all your cookies the same size by using a small cookie scoop. Let the cookies rest one or two minutes before removing them to your cooling rack. Honestly, you don’t need a whole lot of tricks with these cookies. They are simple and delicious! Santa is going to LOVE them!
