For the love of all that is sweet, please make these cookies. They are SOOOO good. I will be making variations of this recipe until the day I die. Not joking. Instant pudding mixes should always be added to cookie dough - it gives just a little something to the texture that makes them perfect, in my opinion.
Served these at dessert night last week and they were gone very fast - I even had a few requests from some individuals (boys, of course) that I make special batches for them. Big hit! Hence the not-so-great picture - I had to take one real quick that night before the last 3 were eaten...
You can find Oreo pudding mix at most large grocery stores...I found mine at Smith's Marketplace. I'd imagine these would be delicious with actual chopped Oreo bits, too, perhaps instead of one of the chocolate bars?
