Hey, guys I always get asked about these cookies I bake for any family event, graduation, and holidays! I feel in love with the chewiest cookies that just melt in your mouth and I was on the search for that one ingredient. Finally, I came across adding vanilla instant pudding to your cookies and it is a game changer! This recipe is super easy to make and great for those who love coffee and cookies in the morning at least I surely do! I also linked below a pastry bag decorating kit for those who are beginners. I did not use this particular one but I liked the fact it had a broad range of different icing tips for different pastries, which is a huge bonus! Hope you guys enjoyed and if you make the cookies tag me in your pictures would love to see some baked goods!

Supplies:
Disposable Pastry Bags (1 worked for me)
Icing tips
Mixing Bowl
Cooling Rack
Baking Sheets
Star Cookie Cutter

Ingredients:
1 Cup Butter
3/4 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup White Sugar
1 Package of Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
2 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 1/4 cups of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups of Peanut Butter Chips
1 can of white icing
1 pack of food coloring
1 container of sprinkles

Instructions:
1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
2.) In a mixing bowl add all ingredients from above together except for the icing and food coloring! This is where you also add peanut butter or the cocoa powder if you wanted!
3.) Add a tablespoon amount onto uncreased baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
4.) Once cooked put on cooling rack and allow ample time for the cookies to cool before applying icing!

Pro Tips:
1.) I ALWAYS use white icing (unless your buying chocolate) because I can use the food coloring to dye it many different colors! Fun Fact: Red+Blue=Purple, so if mixed lightly one can make a precious lavender color with the white also!
2.)If you want more intense peanut butter flavor add 1/4 cup of peanut butter or more of a chocolate flavor 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
3.) Use unsalted butter in your baking! I always stop to ask myself that because some baking recipes call for some salt. So to much salt can ruin a recipe!
