Usually by Sunday, I know what I'll be making for Cookie Monday. This week, all I knew was that I wanted to do something with Oreos. Not a cookie stuffed with Oreos, but a cookie made of Oreos. I searched on Pinterest until I found exactly what I wanted: a Cookies & Cream cookie made with instant pudding mix.
As I learned from the Reese's Pieces cookies last year, pudding mix gives cookies an excellent, wonderful texture. Finding this one with pudding mix made exactly the type of cookie I wanted. In order for it to taste right, you do NEED to use the Cookies & Cream flavor of pudding mix. Don't crap out and use vanilla. Get the Oreo kind.
Personally, I think these are my favorites I've made so far. I love their texture and I love that they taste like cookies & cream ice cream. I would definitely make these again!
