    Well, I just can’t figure out where I went wrong either. I am a culinary school grad and worked in professional kitchens for over a decade. Faced with the challenge of baking for my son, who is allergic to eggs, I turned to your website, since baking was never really my forte to begin with.

    I have had GREAT success with the chocolate cake I found here that calls for silken tofu, achieving perfect results each and every time I make it, but this occasion being his first party at pre-school, I wanted to make something new. I tried these cookies precisely as the recipe indicates, but still managed to produce a suspiciously dry dough (French Vanilla instant pudding, AP flour, and 1.5 sticks of butter). The dough was actually so dry, I didn’t think they’d take the chips so I simply topped each cookie with a single large chip. Nevertheless, I kept moving forward, and baked them off. They took about 11-12 min and came out looking beautiful, but the taste was all wrong, as the cookie fell apart in my mouth like a handful of sand.

    Browsing thru all the comments, I’m assuming I messed up here somewhere, but I just can’t figure out where I went wrong…it’s such a simple recipe, it almost makes no sense that they didn’t come out like yours.

    Could it be the humidity of FL getting the better of the dough? The school party is not for two more days so I plan to make cupcakes out of the chocolate cake recipe that you posted (It truly is magnificent) tomorrow morning, but I may take another shot at these as well if you can point me down the right path.

      Hi Josh, I’m not a trained chef like you but my guess is the butter was not soft enough and so it did not give you enough moisture when you creamed it with sugar. When you creamed the sugar and butter together was it light, fluffy and creamy or did it resemble coarse crumbs? Did you use the right size of instant pudding mix? Because there are only a very few ingredients, I’m not able to think of anything else.

        Sorry Mel, I don’t understand your question. You have to cream the butter and pudding mix (powder) together. You don’t need to make the pudding, if that’s what you meant.

        These cookies have the “melt-in-your-mouth” texture. It’s not firm like some cookies.

    Hi Madhuram, nice recipe you have posted. Before that I tried to make egg less cookies several time and in-vain. But this time I followed your recipe and outcome is mouth watering result. Thanks again for posting the wonderful recipe.

    Can you use Gluten Free Pantry “favorite sandwich bread” mix to make these cookies? It has white rice flour, brown rice flour,potato starch, skim milk, whey, corn starch sugar, and guar gum. Thanks,

      Maybe it could, but you would have to add some more sugar. The amount of sugar used in the bread mix would be definitely less than the pudding mix. So you would have to add sugar. But I wouldn’t know exactly until I try it out myself.

    I hope you know that pudding mix have gelatin in it. And for a vegan and vegetarian it is no no. Wish this recipe had different option than pudding mix. thanks.

      The pudding mix does not contain gelatin. It’s vegan in fact.
