Lemon Pudding Cookies

These lemon pudding cookies are so soft and chewy they practically melt in your mouth and are bursting with fresh lemon flavor!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 (3.4 oz) package lemon pudding mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest (2 lemons, but only use the dark yellow part!)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

Instructions

  1. Whisk together flour, baking soda, pudding mix and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric stand mixer with the paddle attachment until light and fluffy. Add eggs, lemon zest, and lemon juice, and beat until well combined.
  3. Slowly add the flour mixture, beating until just combined after each addition.
  4. Refrigerate dough at least 4 hours. To achieve the height of the cookies pictured, I actually rolled them into 1-inch balls, froze the dough balls for approximately 20 minutes and then baked them.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350°. Bake 8-10 minutes or until the edges have started to lightly brown and the tops are set. [If you freeze the dough it will take several more minutes to cook –just watch them!]

Notes:

Recipe adapted from Crazy for Crust who adapted it from Chef in Training.

    So you may find this strange to hear me say/write but I’ve never made pudding cookies before! How is this possible. Now that I see these cookies and those quadruple chocolate pudding cookies I feel like I’ve missed out on life. LOL I must make these. 🙂 Congrats on the guest post. 🙂

      That is crazy! The chocolate ones were my first ones too…and then I was hooked. I bought a package of pudding mix in every flavor that Kroger had! OOC!

      There is a tiny part of life that you are totally missing out on. Luckily it’s a quick fix 😉

    Looks so Purdy and delicious! Kayle has some delicious looking posts on her blog too! How exciting to do your first guest post. I’ve had one on mine, but haven’t done any myself yet. I wouldn’t even know where to go for my niche haha.

    I can imagine how exciting it must have been to finally meet someone face to face after being friends for so long in the blogosphere!

      Thanks! It was fun! I picked cookies because Kayle is all about the cookies!

      As soon as I find myself in your half of our Country, we will absolutely have to meet up! I think you should probably introduce me to some KBBQ, no?

      I made about 18 but I got lazy and started making them larger. If you made 1″ balls, it should make about 2 dozen.

    Hi! Can you tell me if the pudding is instant or the cooked kind?

      Hi Julie! I believe it was the cooked kind but I think the instant would work just as well. Happy baking!
