These vanilla Christmas sprinkle cookies are wonderfully soft thanks to vanilla pudding in the batter and festively colored with Christmas sprinkles.

Pudding cookies are the ultimate treat for soft cookie lovers. These cookies rarely last long in our home because they are just so perfect. There is something about adding sprinkles to cookies that makes them even more fun for kids.
I find these easiest to make using a stand mixer, but you can also make them using a hand mixer or the good old fashioned way with a wooden spoon. Just be ready to have some really tired arms!
I used sprinkles from Sprinkle Pop shop and they have so many fun varieties! It was hard to settle on just a few so I ended up buying a bunch of small bags to play with too! You might just see some more sprinkles later this week (hint hint).
Note: for my California readers, many of the sprinkle mixes contain gold and silver sprinkles which are apparently not allowed to be shipped to the state of California so be aware your choices will be more limited.
Tips for making the sprinkle pudding cookies:
- For room temperature butter and eggs, remove them from the fridge about 2 hours before you plan to begin making the cookies.
- You can easily change the color of the sprinkles to match any holiday!
- For an extra festive look, roll the tops of the cookie dough balls in extra sprinkles
- If you like, you can change the flavor of the cookies by changing the pudding used. Just take note that the color of the cookies will change based on the pudding used.
- Only use instant pudding! The reason you only want to use instant pudding in this mix is because it won’t set right if you use the ready to cook pudding variety.
- Keep the cookies in an air tight container to keep them soft and eat within 2 days for best taste.
