I posted this recipe when I guest posted at Sugar Bee Crafts. I am a frequent reader of Mandy's blog. I always come to her party on Tuesdays and I love to see what she has to wear during her What I Wore Wednesday posts, and of course she always posts the greatest craft ideas! I thought I would re-post the recipe here in case you did not get a chance to see it.
One of my favorite ways to get ready for Christmas and the Christmas season is by baking Christmas cookies. I am a big cookie fan, so anytime of the year where I can bake and get a lot of cookies is great. I usually bake at least 10 dozen cookies and I like to make an assorted variety of cookies as well. I think cookies make a great gift to give and I usually give co-workers and friends a big bucket of cookies.
While I love making all different types of cookies, these Turtle Cheesecake Pudding Cookies have been one of my favorite types of cookies that I have ever made. These cookies are incredibly moist and delicious. The cheesecake pudding not only adds a hint of cheesecake flavor to the cookie but also makes the cookie very moist. With every bite, you get an amazingly moist cookie along with chocolate, caramel, and pecans. What could be better!! They also stayed moist for days, which is good when you are sending cookies or giving them as a gift. I hope that you add this great cookie to your Christmas baking list! Enjoy!!!
