Sometimes kids say the funniest things!

Here’s just a little glimpse into the odd convserations at the Shugary house:

 

Tessa (teenage daughter): “Hey dad, can you teach me to iron?” (don’t get sidetracked by the fact that my husband is the one who irons in our house. We all have our strengths, haha)

Michael (the dad): “Sure!”

Tessa: “Nevermind, I’m sure they’ll teach me that in ‘Intro to Adultery'” (insert snickers and glances between me and Michael. Like seriously, I was dying.)

Michael: “Tessa, do you know what Adultery means?”

Tessa: “Isn’t that where they teach you to be a fake adult??”

There really isn’t much to explain here. We teach our kids about God, take them to church, teach them the 10 Commandments. And yet…sometimes…there is a disconnect, haha!!

I guess between choosing classes for high school and going to church, her worlds collided in her brain and came out wrong. Needless to say it provided some great laughter (and continues to provide laughter)!

It’s times like this that call for cookies. Soft and chewy M&M Pudding Cookies to be exact!

Years ago I made these Pistachio Cookies using pudding mix. I loved them, the softness from pudding mix makes these cookies extra delicious!

I realized all the times I’ve been making pudding cookies, those pistachio cookies are the only ones here up on the blog. That’s going to change. Right now. Because I think it’s time you all try baking these M&M Pudding cookies too!

I know there are thousands of chocolate chip cookies out there for you to try. I even have these Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies here on the blog, as well as these Rainbow Cookies. And while they most definitely are two of my favorite recipes, sometimes I love changing things up. I mean, nobody likes to eat the same spaghetti recipe every week, or the same meatloaf, right? Same goes for cookies.

Let’s talk about soft and chewy cookies for a minute. While I hold a special place in my heart for those perfect chocolate chip cookies, they have a very different texture. Those cookies have a little bit of a crunch on the outside, while remaining soft on the inside. Today’s pudding cookie recipe is purely soft from the moment your teeth sink into the cookie!

One of the reasons is because I start with melted butter, which increases the chewiness! Also, adding in the pudding mix keeps these cookies SOFT. And they stay soft longer too! These are perfect if you need to make them in advance. I like to bake a batch of these on Sundays so that my kids can enjoy them all week in their lunches! And by Friday (if there are any left), they are still soft like they were on day 1. No joke.

    That is such an adorable story. Only a story like that can make the word “adultery” cute!
    And I don’t iron, either. Really. That’s not how I want to spend time here on earth.
    These cookies look incredible! I love pudding cookies. They are always the best ones!

  2. hahaha! That is the best! No judgments on the ironing here, it’s not for everyone! 🙂 I love how cookies are just the perfect thing to follow up such a great conversation 😉 These cookies look awesome and pudding always makes for some of the BEST cookies too!

  3. Haha your daughter sounds like she’s the cutest! Gotta love her innocence! These cookies look so delicious, Aimee! Pudding cookies are one of my favorites, I just love the soft and chewy texture! And when they’re packed with M&Ms, even better!

    I think it is great when a man can iron, cook, and clean. Any time I have been sick, had kids, or had surgery my husband took care of it all. He never had to call his mom or mine to come help. After 48 years of marriage with just the two of us here he still helps. He irons as good as any woman. He likes his shirts starched too. HA!! Our kids didn’t much want their clothes ironed but they were as long as they lived here.

    If I knew I was having anything medically done I always cooked and froze so he only had to heat it up. Just don’t like to have to call on people unless it is an emergency. 

    This cookie dough would freeze well I am sure.

  5. Aimee, these cookies look absolutely unreal! I love how soft the pudding makes them 🙂 Pinning!

  6. I love M&M, so these cookies look really good to me. I’m sure they taste as good as they look, so I’m going to try the recipe for sure!

    These cookies are fabulous!! I made them last night and followed the recipe with just one small change – I used dark brown sugar in place of light. It gave the cookies a rich, toffee-like flavor. I’ve never used pudding mix in cookies before, and I must say, WOW!!! I’m so amazed at how incredibly delicious it makes the cookies! I will now be adding pudding to all of my cookie reipes! Thank you Aimee for sharing this delightful recipe with everyone! 🙂

    Just found this recipe on Pinterest. As soon as I got home I had to make them. Thankfully I had almost all the ingredients! No M&Ms because I have a nut-allergy kid, so used 2 cups of mini chocolate chips instead. This is a great cookie! Thanks for sharing!

    How do you get your cookies to be so “flat”..I followed recipe exact and mine are more rounded on top BUT that being said they are delicious! 🙂 I was just curious if you flattened them before baking or anything..
