Get into the spirit of Saint Patrick’s Day with these festive cookies! Pistachio pudding provides the green coloring, but you could substitute another flavor like lemon or butterscotch.


3/4 cup butter (or margarine)
1 1/4 cup flour
1 packet Jello-O pudding (we used pistachio)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
White chocolate morsels (optional)


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Combine pudding mix, butter, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Gradually add flour, while continuing to mix. Drop tablespoons of dough onto a baking sheet, and bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Let stand for about 5 minutes before dipping into melted white chocolate for an extra burst of sweetness!

Unbelievable!  After a day with these cookies, I’m never buying cinnamon twists again.  Surprisingly, they tasted AMAZING with cranberry juice - maybe its because there’s no eggs?  Either way, fantastic recipe.  So excited I found this blog!
