Peaches n' Cream Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies are a delicious combination of peaches, vanilla, and white chocolate. The instant oatmeal and vanilla pudding mix both melt away into the dough, making these cookies perfectly chewy and pillowy. 


1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp. white sugar
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract 
1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 4-serving box instant vanilla pudding mix (dry)
4 individual packets of peaches n' cream instant oatmeal
3/4 cup white chocolate chips


In a large bowl, cream together the sugars and butter until smooth. Add in the vanilla and the egg and continue mixing until combined. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and vanilla pudding mix. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until well incorporated.

Stir in the contents of the instant oatmeal packets and the white chocolate chips until evenly distributed.

Cover and refrigerate the cookie dough for at least half an hour prior to baking. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line the cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Roll the chilled dough into small balls and place on the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 9-11 minutes, until the cookies just begin to lightly brown around the edges and the middle has just set. Remove from the oven and place on wire racks to cool.
