I'm usually not a cherry-flavored dessert person (especially when maraschino cherries are involved). Don't get my wrong, I LOVE eating cherries in fresh fruit form. I just don't like it in my dessert, however, I will admit there are a couple cherry desserts I do enjoy.
But these cookies, oh these cookies, are a game-changer for me. Ok, maybe I can't go that far... They are an exception to my (mostly) no-cherry-dessert-rule.
They are soft, sweet, and PINK!
What are you waiting for?
Make these adorable cookies now!
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons Cherry flavored gelatin (uncooked)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 package instant white chocolate pudding (3.3 ounces, uncooked)
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 bag white chocolate chips
Cream butter, sugar and Jello together.
Add eggs and vanilla, cream again.
Combine flour, pudding mix, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl then slowly add to butter mixture.
Once all combined, fold in chocolate chips.
Spoon onto parchment lined baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes.
Let cool on cookie sheets for 5 minutes before removing to racks to cool completely.
Mine yielded about 36 cookies which is ~23 grams carbohydrates per cookie
