Soft Cookies And Cream Cookies

I made the soft Nutella chocolate cookies last week. And after I finished them, all I could think about was making another variation.

Posts about limited edition Oreos made me think of trying a cookies and cream version. I love my chewy cookies and cream cookies, but I thought a soft one would be delicious too. And these were. They bake up quite thick but are also soft and full of cookies and cream goodness.

I had to give some away so that I wouldn’t eat all two dozen by myself. These go really well with a glass of cold milk.

Soft Cookies and Cream Cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
These cookies bake up quite thick but are also soft and full of cookies and cream goodness.


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 3.4 ounce packages instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 20 oreos


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Sift together the flour and baking soda, set aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until creamy and fluffy.
  • Beat in the instant pudding mix until blended. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
  • Mix in the flour mixture at low speed until fully incorporated into the dough. Add in the oreos and mix on low to medium speed, letting the mixer crush the oreos until oreo cookies are crushed into small pieces and mixed into dough.
  • Make balls of cookie dough, about 1 1/2 inch in diameter and place on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper or silpat mats, spacing dough balls about 2 inches apart. Press down on the dough balls as cookies do not spread out that much during baking.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes until edges turn golden brown. Let cookies cool on cookie sheets before removing.

  1. hello, love your page,
    just wanted to ask if you use the pudding mix as it is? i mean as a powder or do you make the pudding like mixing it with milk or smt.?

    thank you

  2. How many cookies does one batch make?

  3. I made these for my family and my family is worried they were undone because of how soft and gooey they are. Exactly how gooey and soft should they be?

  4. My cookies came out super flat 🙁 any suggestions on what I may have done wrong?

    • It sounds like too much butter or too much liquid in the batter. You added the pudding mix dry right? Also did you double check your butter measurements. I’ve mistakenly added too much butter several times to recipes without realizing it until my cookies come out flat.

  5. Yep, added the pudding dry. 1 cup = 2 sticks of butter right? Or am I doing the math wrong lol. My mixer also took a crap halfway thru, I had to hand stir in the Oreos. I don’t think anything was over beaten or anything. They’re still soft, chewy and delicious, tho! I just wish they looked prettier (like yours) lol : )

    • Hmmm, yup everything seems right. Not sure why yours are coming out so flat. Maybe you can try adding a little more flour next time.

  6. LOVED this recipe.
    I tried a different recipe for Cookie and Cream but this is the winner.
    Thank you!

  7. I only have instant cheesecake-flavored pudding mix at my house. Do you think that would be an okay substitution, or should I hold off until I go grocery shopping? Thanks!

  8. They really didn’t taste cheesecake-y, which is good because I’m not a cheesecake fan. They were absolutely delicious though, thank you!!

  9. Saw these and thought they looked amazing!
    Just wondering if its completely necessary to add the pudding mix?
    I’d have to do some looking to find it where i live.Thanks in advance!

    • yes, that’s actually what makes the cookies soft. good luck! I have some other cookie recipes to try if you can’t find the pudding mix.
