Key Lime Pudding Cookies
















Have I told you about my goodwill jeans? I sorted through a bunch of our clothes right after Christmas to take to our local goodwill store. There was this pair of jeans that didn't fit anymore. Anyway they got thrown on the floor but didn't make it into the bag to go to goodwill. So they got picked up and washed in the laundry. They then got folded and put away. Then I went to grab them to wear to work. I get them half on and realize that they are not the right jeans. What?

So I throw the jeans on the floor in a mini rage. Then you know what happens. They get picked up again, washed again.. then folded... and I try them on again. Another mini rage. Its a vicious cycle of jeans. It is my mission this week to get these jeans out of my life.
















Want to know what makes you feel better about repeatedly trying on jeans that don't fit. Pudding cookies! If I could only bake one thing for the rest of my life it would be pudding cookies. Why? Well they always turn out perfectly... so moist and delicious. Plus there is always new varieties to try. I've done Banana Split, Chocolate Mint, and Raspberry Cheesecake. Now I've added key lime. These even have an extra secret. They have greek yogurt in them.

I know total pudding cookie victory right. So I suggest you make these... because you will love them. Meanwhile I'm off to corral those jeans.

  2. Great recipe...I've had key lime on the brain for a while now. I suspect it has something to do with the -3456° temperatures outside. I think these cookies would be a perfect solution to the cold winter, though!
