How do you keep cookies soft?

There are 2 ways to ensure your cookies are soft. Do not over bake the cookies. When you over bake the cookie, the cookies almost always turn out hard. Make sure the cookies are taken from the oven on time or even slightly before. The other way to keep the cookies soft is to make sure to store them properly. Cookies should be stored in an airtight container or freeze bags. If the cookies are left out they will go stales and that makes the cookies hard. If you find that the cookies have started to get hard, you microwave them for about 10 to 15 seconds. This will give the cookies a fresh from the oven taste and make them soft. Don’t overheat them though, because if they sit, they will harden even more.

Are these Stuffed Cookies

You will take the cookie dough and you are stuffing the cookies with Reese’s peanut butter cups. Once you take the lower part of the cookie dough, you will place the peanut butter cup on the dough. Then you will take the cookie dough and roll it around the Peanut butter cup and create a stuffed cookie.

How Long Do Pudding Cookies Last

Ingredients for Pudding Cookies

  • All purpose flour
  • Baking soda
  • Salt
  • Instant chocolate pudding
  • Unsalted butter
  • Creamy peanut butter
  • Sugar
  • Light brown sugar
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla extract
  • Honey
  • 24 miniature Reese’s peanut butter cups

How to make Reese Stuffed Pudding Cookies Recipe

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and pudding; set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter, peanut butter, sugar and brown sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add eggs, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Add vanilla extract and honey and beat until combined. Reduce speed to low and add flour mixture, beat to combine.

Roll a heaping tablespoon of dough into a 1½-inch ball between your palms and flatten it a bit. Top with a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup. Top with another tablespoonful of dough (so that the PB Cup is sandwiched between two tablespoons of dough). Roll into a ball so that the peanut butter cup is completely encased and place on the prepared cookie sheet, spacing the balls about 3 inches apart. Using your palm, gently flatten the dough balls slightly.

Bake 10 minutes. Let cookies cool on sheets for 2 minutes before transferring cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
