These are so easy to make and incredibly moist. You can use whatever cake mix and pudding mix flavors you have on hand, but I prefer chocolate!

This batter is VERY stiff, as stated in the will probably need to mix by hand. They do turn out cakey, but I like that about them. If you are looking for a crisp cookie, this is not the one :)

These cookies are really good and so easy to make. I used plain, non-fat yogurt in place of the sour cream and the batter was not stiff at all. Great recipe!

The batter was extremly stiff. Too stiff for a hand mixer. The cookies are little puffy cake like things that are OK, but not spectacular. Luckily, my son will eat anything.
