If you loved my “World’s most perfect plain cookie“ post from a few weeks ago, then this one’s for you. And if you’re looking for something fun and easy to make to celebrate St. Patty’s day, then this one’s for you too!
Actually, I think this is a great little cookie to use for all different occasions. Wouldn’t the fresh green color look great on a platter of Easter treats too?
Today I wanted to share with you this little variation on the perfect plain cookie recipe because they just turned out so well. AND! As a bonus, Chris even ate a bunch, so even though they’re a little bit fun, they weren’t too fun and they didn’t scare him off, being the plain cookie lover that he is.
Here’s what you need to make these elegantly-green, just-slightly-nutty cookies:
-1 box of golden cake mix (432g size)
-1 box of pistachio instant pudding mix (102g size)
-1/2 cup of melted salted butter
Mix everything together and roll it into little 1.5 inch balls. Place them about an inch apart on your cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes. Marvel at the deliciousness of this ridiculously easy recipe.
I forgot to mention in the last pudding cookie recipe, but one of the things that I love so much about this recipe is that the dough is so easy to handle! It’s not sticky at all and it’s really easy to work with and even easier to clean up. Gotta love that!
Give this one a try before St. Patty’s day and let me know what you think!
