In September of 1964 I sat in a required junior high home economics class learning to bake and sew. I saved this recipe in my best handwriting and still use it. These cookies are super simple and tasty. Great recipe when you get unexpected company for tea, or to give the children something to make on a rainy day. They make a very small batch so they're great for singles too.


  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Drop by teaspoonful on ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Flatten slightly with fingers or fork.
  4. Bake 7 to 8 minutes at 375° F.
  5. May use nuts or colored sugar before baking.

I loved this recipe..... I made them for Valentines day and added a bit of food coloring. I also used cheesecake flavored pudding, and everyone thought that they were a hit! So many people have asked for the recipe. The best part is how simple and easy they are to make.

Well, this was definately easy and simple! It should be stated what size box to use though. I used one of the small 3.9 oz size boxes and it turned out good. I dont know if using one of the bigger boxes would increase the flavor more? I'll have to try it some time. Anyway, these turned out really good. I rolled them into balls and flattened them with my thumb, and sprikled them with sugar. They were great because I was tired after being on my feet all day, but was craving cookies. :) All in all, 10 minutes tops. My kind of cookie!

This is comfort food at its finest. Though I'm from a different generation, I had to make Bisquick chocolate chip cookies in home ec-- and was wondering about the recipe recently. Thanks for posting it! I may have hated 7th grade but man those were great cookies. Vanilla pudding mix + a handful of chocolate chips = classic. I'm curious to try this with the Jello Oreo pudding now...
