Directions

  1. Directions
  2. Preheat oven to 350f.
  3. Blend wet ingredients. Add dry mix(es) and blend well, removing any lumps. Add mix-ins if using. (If using pudding mix, note that the dough will be sticky.)
  4. Drop cookie mix by teaspoonful, one inch apart, onto greased or lined cookie sheets.
  5. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes depending on how crispy you want the cookies. Shorter time for soft, longer time for crispy.
  6. Arrange cookies on racks to cool. Frost or glaze if desired. (To make glaze, mix sugar and extract/juice in a bowl. Add water/milk until desired consistency is reached. Add food coloring if desired.) If you are glazing, consider adding colored sugar or sprinkles for a festive touch. (My kids love that part!) Let the cookies dry completely before packaging or storing.
