It's National Cookie Month - 1st Up - Oreo Pudding Cookies

October is National Cookie Month! I'm not sure who came up with that, but any excuse to make some cookies is a good one for me! I will be posting up lots of cookie recipes this month in honor of this occasion. First up is one of my personal favorites:

Oreo Pudding Cookies

1 cup butter, room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 (4.2 ounce) package instant Oreo Pudding mix
2 1/4 cups flour 
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 package Hershey's Cookies N Cream Drops

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chocolate chunks

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl and set aside. Cream together butter and sugars. Beat in pudding mix until blended. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add the flour mixture and mix to combine. Stir in cookies n' cream pieces and chocolate chips. Batter will be thick.

Using a cookie dough scooper, place golf ball sized dough balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. You do not want to overbake these! Let cookies cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet before moving to a cooking rack. Store in air-tight container. Makes two dozen.

Hope you enjoy this delicious treat and stay tuned for more!
