Chocolate Chip-Pecan Pumpkin Spice Pudding Cookies


I’ve made these cookies about five times in the last month.  Because about a month ago I bought out the entire stock of Jell-O Instant Pumpkin Spice Pudding at Wal-Mart. Mostly with intentions of making this Pumpkin Lust Cake a few times this fall.  But that left me with about a dozen extra boxes of Pumpkin Spice Pudding.  

So I’ve been making batches and batches of these cookies.
I wish I could tell you the reason I have yet to share them is because  I’ve been perfecting the recipe over the last month.  I have a growing collection of pudding cookies and the recipe is an easy one.  
The truth is they’ve just vanished before I could take a decent picture.  
 The last time I made these, ahem, over the weekend, I added pecans.  That might have been the smartest thing I’ve done in a while.  Or dumbest.  Two dozen cookies later….I’m feeling a teeny bit guilty.  
But at least I took a picture.

    Has anyone tried these with white chocolate or toffee chips? I have 3 boxes of pudding so I may have to try 3 different chips!

    I looked everywhere (Walmart, Target, Shop N Save, Dierberg’s, and Schnucks) for pumpkin spice pudding, and couldn’t find it. I was super disappointed.

    So I modified the recipe a bit… and used Jello’s butterscotch instant pudding and added 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice instead. The results were awesome; they still tasted like pumpkin. I also used dark chocolate chips, which were perfect. Highly recommended cookie recipe!

      Bummer you couldn’t find it!! But such a great idea to use butterscotch pudding!! Glad they turned out!
