These cookies and cream cookies stay soft and fluffy for days, making them a perfect gift for the holidays.

For my holiday baking, I like to make cookie recipes that store well, especially since many of my friends and family won’t receive the cookies right away.

For years, I’ve made these soft chocolate chip cookies that use pudding mix to help maintain a fluffy texture. My siblings like to joke that the cookies will never go hard and if we were to bury them and dig them up a decade later they would still be soft.

This idea came about when some accidentally were forgotten and found a few months later, still feeling very soft (Don’t worry, no one actually ate them!).

While grocery shopping the other day, I saw cookies and cream flavored pudding mix. And I just knew I had to make it into some soft cookies and cream cookies.

These cookies came out just perfect. I love how creamy they are from the crushed Oreo and cookies and cream pudding mix. The cookies have a winter look to them as well which I really enjoy.

If you love soft cookies you might like my Soft Nutella Cookies and Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, too.
