Totally addicting Banana Pudding Crinkle Cookies! They are soft, chewy and made to taste like banana pudding with banana cream and vanilla wafers.
Why did I do this to myself?? Banana pudding is one of my favorite desserts and so as pretty much anything banana pudding flavored. (Especially ice cream!) So what did I do? I made awesome chewy crinkle cookies that taste like my favorite dessert. Oh, I can just hear my thighs cursing me out! My taste buts are screaming “more” and my thighs are screaming “don’t you dare reach for another cookie!” It’s a real battle in my head…good thing no one can hear it.
These cookies are seriously delicious! Soft, chewy and bursting with deliciousness.
Now that I’ve shared the recipe, you need to make them and become addicted, like I did! Yes, misery loves company and this is one delicious misery.
I’m not the only one who couldn’t get enough of these cookies. Look closely at the picture above. I call it “catching the thief red handed!” While I took the pictures, he kept stealing cookies. I was actually surprised but not for the reason you might think. It’s not because of his thieving of cookies, he actually does that all the time, but because of the fact that he tried and liked banana flavored something. He has not so much as touched a banana or banana flavored baked goods since he was a baby and decided he hates bananas. Wow!
(As I’m writing this, I’m having to shoo away the cat from a cookie left on a coffee table! Now that’s some serious powers when even a cat can’t stay away from the cookie.)
Give them a try and make sure to come back and tell me how you like these cookies!
