I'm pretty sure I have more days than not that I crave cookie dough. Not actual cookies, just the dough. I make a whole batch for just a couple spoonfuls of dough. Okay, more than a couple. Then I make the cookies and send them to work with Dave. Most of the time I choose chocolate chip because chocolate chip cookie dough is amazing and if you don't agree then something might be wrong with you. Sorry, not sorry. But this random weeknight, I chose M&M cookies because they are Dave's favorite and I figure he deserves some cookie dough too. Also hoping it will bribe him to put the tv up in the office, but I'm not holding my breath on that one.
Plus, it gave me a chance to try out a new ingredient. I keep seeing cookie recipes that use pudding mix in the dough and it's supposed to make the cookies super soft. Well, I tried it out. Holy moly, it worked! These are perfect and super soft and I love them so much. I have no idea the rhyme or reason behind it, but it's amazing. I love a soft cookie and these verge on being soft enough where you wonder if it's even cooked all the way through. (it is, don't worry) Squishy and sweet and packed with M&Ms.
These went to work with Dave, of course, and apparently they were gone by 10am which I'll take as a good sign. Have you ever used pudding mix in your cookie recipes? What do you think, will you give it a try?
