Lately I have been obsessed with instant vanilla pudding and adding it to baked goods and seeing – and tasting – the results. These “Vanilla Pudding Snickerdoodles” are quickly becoming a favorite around here and I highly recommend you try them!
Vanilla Pudding Snickerdoodles
2 sticks (8 oz.) unsalted butter, soft
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup white granulated sugar
1/3 cup vanilla instant pudding mix
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups white all-purpose flour
Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl combine the softened unsalted butter, light brown sugar and white granulated sugar until light in color and fluffy in texture.
Stir in the vanilla instant pudding mix.
Stir in the large eggs.
Beat in the pure vanilla extract, baking soda and salt. Gently fold in the white all-purpose flour.
Combine 1/4 cup white granulated sugar with 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon in a small bowl.
Roll tablespoon size balls of dough into the cinnamon-sugar mixture and place on prepared baking sheets.
Bake, one sheet at a time, in preheated oven for 13 minutes.
Remove and allow to cool.
