    Really!!!! A full cup of butter is correct? The pictures look awesome and I love cookies with pudding in the mix. I have another recipe with pudding but it uses oatmeal and they are wonderful. I just made these and, the flavor is great but they fell flat. After cooking the first pan, I refrigerated the dough for an hour and added another 1/2 cup of flour but to no avail – they still were as flat as a pancake. If I make these again I think I would cut the butter in 1/2. Any suggestions? Oh, I did double the recipe which means a full pound of butter!

    • Jamielyn replied on June 7th, 2013 at 4:57 am

      Hi Cathy! Yup- 1 cup of butter. Only on special occasions do I make these. ;) I’m wondering if the butter was too soft. If I accidentally melt mu butter of soften it too much they will fall flat. The butter needs to be soft, but not flat. Also, you could try taking out some of the butter and see if that helps. Let me know how it turns out with less butter. :D

    Well, I just tried making these. Followed instructions to the letter, but my dough was very gluey, which gave me gluey cookies as opposed to gooey ones. I usually use shortening instead of butter, but I tried butter with this. I think that might be where I had trouble. Or I didn’t pack the flour enough and had less than needed… I don’t know. I usually make the Nestlé recipe on the back of the bag to great success (using shortening of course). They taste okay, but not great.

    • Jamielyn replied on June 17th, 2013 at 2:18 pm

      Hey Erin! Sorry you had trouble with the recipe, they have always turned out great for us. I’m thinking that either the butter was too melted or there was not enough flour added. It could be an issue with humidity or altitude depending on where you live. But I would try adding a little more flour next time. Happy baking!

    I’m a bit of a choclate chip cookie connoiseur and these are awesome! I used 1 cup of milk choclate chips, 1/2 cup of white, and 1/2 cup of semi-sweet. I was kind of bored of my previous cookie recipe and fits the bill now! Next time I’m going to swap out some all-purpose flour for whole wheat – always adds a little bit of nuttiness. Its a keeper! (now if only that Orange Zucchini Bread from some other site turned out as well…)

      I’ve never made them with gluten free flour, but I’ve heard you can substitute it in cookies just fine. It is a 1:1 ratio, so you would use 2 1/4 cups of flour! Let us know if you end up trying it! :)

    This is definitely my new cookie recipe. They are so soft and tasty. I made a couple of substitutions. I used jello sugar free white chocolate pudding (1 oz). I also used milk chocolate and peanut butter chips. The dough was a little dry, so I added a little bit of water. I chilled it between baking batches to make it easier to use in my cookie scoop. Thanks for the recipe :)

      You may have used a little too much flour…everyone measures flour differently. Next time I would add a little less flour and make sure that your butter is softened to room temperature! Good job making your first batch of cookies from scratch! :)

    Hi,

    These look delicious, question though about the instant vanilla pudding mix. 
    I’m from Belgium and I want some clarification.

    The pudding mix, if you make normal vanilla pudding do you make it with warmed up milk? or with cold milk?

    We have this: 
    http://www.oetker.be/be-nl/onze-producten/pudding/assortiment.html

    or 

    This:

    I’m thinking the second one. Cold preparation

    “Line baking with baking mat and then spoon cookie dough onto the baking sheet”

    LOL… trying to figure out what you meant here!

      Sorry for the confusion! I line my cookie sheet with a baking mat or parchment paper and then add the cookie dough by spoonfuls on the baking mat. Hopefully that makes more sense! :)

    I made these today and they are the best cookies I have ever made.  Thank you for this wonderful recipe.  I didn’t have vanilla pudding  in the house…so I used coconut instant pudding and they came out perfectly.  It is only a subtle difference and you can barely taste the coconut flavor.  I also used the salted butter.   Thanks again!!!!
