These Banana Pudding Cookies are AMAZING and EASY! They are another concoction thanks to my daughter. After taste testing, she described them as “sweet, with melty, gooey chips, and a surprising crunch.” The crunch is provided by vanilla wafers, which are paired with white chocolate chips in a banana-flavored cookie dough. Banana pudding turned cookie! Yum!
You can whip these cookies up in 20 minutes. No chilling required, just mix and drop and they turn out beautifully chewy.
I think these are a new favorite of mine.
This recipe bakes up 24 cookies, perfect for sharing.
Banana Pudding Cookies
Chewy banana pudding cookies studded with white chocolate chips and vanilla wafer pieces
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ ts baking soda
- ½ cup margarine, softened (use one with a high vegetable oil content like Land O’Lakes)
- 2 Tb white sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1 3.4 oz pkg instant banana pudding
- 1 egg
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 8 vanilla wafer cookies
- yellow food coloring, optional
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
2. Beat margarine, brown sugar, and white sugar until completely creamy. Beat in banana pudding mix until fully combined with the butter mixture, then beat in the egg. Add a few drops of yellow food coloring, if desired. Mix in flour and baking soda until fully incorporated. Break the vanilla wafers into pieces and add them to the cookie dough, along with the white chocolate chips. Stir until combined.
3. Use a cookie scoop or large spoon to drop by tablespoonfuls on cookie sheet. Bake in upper third of oven for 8-9 minutes. Do not over bake. Cookies will appear underdone, but will set while cooling. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
