Hmm, cake or cookies, cake or cookies? Well, why not both! These Cake Batter Cookies are like amped up sugar cookies only with the delicious taste of buttery yellow cake. They are so good! If you love sugar cookies and yellow cake, this cookie is for you.
This cookie recipe calls for a full box of dry instant vanilla pudding. The pudding helps give the cookies a super moist, fluffy texture. I’m usually not a cookie person but I can’t keep my hands off these! I’m sitting here daydreaming of two cake batter cookies with a scoop of cake batter ice cream in the middle. Now that would be heaven!
