Fruity Pebbles Cookies

How can you see this picture and not want to make these cookies? 
That is what I thought when I came across this recipe on Pinterest.  

These cookies were not only fun but pretty darn tasty!
The crunch was a little different at first but as soon as I got the burst of flavor, I was sold.  
I'm not going to admit how many I ate, but I had way more than I should have! 
I can't wait for my little one to be big enough to bake with me, I know she would enjoy making these cookies.  
Enjoy! 



And if you need something to make with the remaining fruity pebbles, check these out!

    1. I decreased the flour by 1/8 C (due to these comments) and didn't have trouble with them being puffy. Maybe give that a try?

  3. Was your butter to cold? That can do it.

  4. I also made these. The butter was soft and practiced with 3 pans of it. The first was rolled, #2 was flattened like peanut butter cookies and the 3rd was dropped by teaspoon and none flattened out like the pic. But they are delicious!!

  6. Can I use already made vanilla pudding instead of just the mix? Will it turn out the same?

  7. Mine were not as white, they were more yellow...maybe if you held out a yolk? I did end up pressing them like peanut butter cookies as well.

    1. Do I prepare the pudding mix per package directions or do I just add the powder?

  9. I wet my fingers with a little water and pressed them down some before baking. It helped them get a little flatter. They are delicious

  10. I took the advice of wetting my hands a little and pressing them down before baking and that did help flatten them somewhat. I wasn't impressed with the taste however, either way.

  11. I left out the extra 1/4 cup of flour, added white chocolate chips (not sure why omitted) and they were fabulous. I also smashed them down some before baking

  12. Is it 1/2 cup of butter or 1 and 1/2 cup of butter. that was a little confusing.

    1. It's 3/4 of a cup of butter. A stick of butter is 1/2 cup. I'm getting ready to make these. Hope they turn out good.

    2. I replaced the vanilla pudding with chocolate pudding and used cocoa pebbles I bake constantly and these are so far my favorite

  13. do I really need to line the cookie sheet with parchment paper?

    ReplyDelete
  14. It should read as 1 and 1 half sticks of butter. I researched many recipes because it was unclear.

  15. I made the recipe exactly as directed, except I flattened each cookie with my hands. They came out a little fluffy, but that's a good thing! They were wonderful!

  16. I didn't add the white chocolate chips, since I didn't have any on hand. But, I used white chocolate instant pudding mix instead of vanilla. They turned out awesome! I also used the back of a spatula to flatten them a bit right after I took them out of the oven. I'd definitely make these again!

  17. How many cookies did this recipe make ?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I have read every one response. An I'm thinking there should have been another liquid added to the recipe. What do y'all think.

  19. I made these and got 3 1/2 dozens. I used the Tablespoon from my measuring set.

  20. Love these! Making my second batch today. I used cannabis infused coconut oil instead of butter. Makes them magical ;) I also flatten them.

  21. Flour with a High Gluten content will make them puff up. Most bread flours are not good for cookies. Gold Medal general purpose works well.

  22. I just made them. They are awesome! I pushed them down and they were flat. Next time I'm gonna put the white chocolate chips in them. Ty for this recipe

  23. I used organic unbleached flour, and squished them down between my hands bit after rolling into a ball before setting on a parchment lined cookie sheet to bake. My ball size I rolled them into was around golf ball sized or a tiny bit bigger. Turned out great. The recipe ingredients list didnt say white chocolate chips so I didnt get any =[ but still a very good cookie without.
