My 3 ingredient Peanut Butter Pudding Cookies could not be more delicious and simple to whip up! This batch makes 9 perfect cookies so you won’t have too many to resist, lol!

Peanut Butter Pudding Cookies

Sometime you just need a cookie that you can whip up in about 2 minutes.  Literally one bowl, 3 ingredients and these babies are in the oven.  Peanut buttery bites of cookie heaven.  I love that this recipe only makes 9 cookies.  Less to haunt you in the kitchen, haha!  Feel free to double the recipe as needed for more cookies!

Perfect cookie to bake with the kids this summer, they can do all of these steps no problem!

Give a good mix until your dough forms.

Scoop your dough into some sparkling sugar if desired.  Not necessary, but it gives the cookies a great crunch!

Onto the baking sheet they go.  Use a fork and press a criss cross into each cookie.  Time to bake!

    I agree, nine of these cookies in the kitchen at once would be tempting enough!

    That peanut butter is my favorite!! Adding pudding to cookies is such a great way to keep them so moist, but I have never added it to peanut butter cookies. You just changed my life. Pinned!

    Oooh great, a simple recipe I probably have the Ing. for at any time. That won’t help temptation! ;) I also love that it’s naturally gluten free!

    I made these last night and they are SO so so incredibly delicious. I even convinced a girlfriend to make them also.

    What do you think would happen with sugar free pudding?

      Jenny says:

      So glad to hear you enjoyed them! Not sure about the sugar free pudding, it’s worth a shot!!

      GailH says:

      I also wondered about the sugar free pudding. I have made peanut butter cookies with sweetener such as swerve or splenda, peanut butter and egg and they turned out good. Maybe I will experiment with sugar free jello.

    Diana says:

    My stepdaughters love making the traditional peanut butter cookies, this sounds like a great twist to the recipe, will try this! :) Thanks to Kristen Duke for sharing on her Facebook page!

    Rusti says:

    I wonder how it would be with the dry peanut butter you add water to? PB2 — super low calories, plus sugar free jello pudding? may have to give it a try! thanks for the wonderful idea! sounds great! (I may have to chop up some peanuts too :)

    BethLP says:

    I made these tonight and they were deee-licious! What was great was I mixed up the dough, and then cooked just two(generous-sized)cookies in the toaster oven. I’m saving the rest of the dough in the fridge for the next time I need a freshly-baked cookie.

    (It’s probably going to be tomorrow.)

    (Yeah, definitely tomorrow.)

    Does this really only make nine cookie ???

    cindy3539 says:

    I got 15 cookies, but it all depends on the size you make them. I also made mine in a toaster oven with no problem. Sorry, but I did not care for these cookies at all. They definitely need to be rolled in sugar before baking. They are bland without it. The recipe that uses 1/2 cup sugar instead of the pudding mix tastes better to me, but thanks for posting it.

    Lori says:

    I was so excited to make these peanut butter pudding cookies, but I’m really disappointed with them. I followed the recipe as directed and used the Sparkling sugars and it tasted to bitter for me. I like a little sweeter cookie.

    […] I made but then misplaced. While searching for that recipe, I came across a fabulous recipe by Picky Palate for Peanut Butter Pudding Cookies and wondered if I could do something similar using […]

    BethLP says:

    I loooove these cookies! I mix up the dough, make two each for me and my husband, and cook them in the toaster oven. (They only need ten minutes in the toaster over, btw.) I save the rest of the dough in the fridge for the next time I feel like cookies.

    Variations I have tried:

    1) with chocolate chips and no sanding sugar.
    2) with chocolate pudding mix.
    3) dough wrapped around three frozen mini-marshmallows before baking.

    All of these turned out super-yummy. Next? I’m going to try banana pudding!

    Excellent post however I was wondering if you could write a
    litte more on this topic? I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a
    little bit more. Thanks!

    Grace says:

    I love this! I never would have considered using pudding to make cookies. My friends and I love to bake, but have limited access to a kitchen, so this would be perfect for us. No fuss no muss! Do you have any other recipes similar to this, but with different pudding flavors?

    Wendy says:

    Made these with Honey Roasted Peanut Butter (PB & Co’s Bees Knees), rolled in raw sugar. CANNOT keep these in the house – they are dangerously good!
