Pumpkin Streusel Pudding Cookies

Well, once again I am posting another recipe involving pumpkin spice deliciousness.  A pretty, easy treat, that tastes wonderful!

Pumpkin Streusel Pudding Cookies

Cookie Dough:
3/4 c. butter, softened
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. white sugar
1 (3.4 oz.) box Pumpkin Spice instant pudding mix
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
2 1/4 c. flour

Streusel Topping:
1/4 c. butter, COLD
1/4 c. white sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Begin by making the Streusel Topping.
Sift together the white sugar, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon in a medium bowl.  Cut in the cold butter, until small crumbs form.  Set aside (I recommend returning the mix to the fridge until you need it).

Next, make the cookie dough.
Cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar in a large mixing bowl.
Add the DRY pumpkin spice pudding mix and beat until well combined.
Add the eggs and vanilla and mix in.
In a separate bowl stir together the flour and baking soda, then combine with the dough mix.  Mix until everything is well incorporated.
Roll dough into 1" balls (about the size of an un-shelled walnut), then place on a cookie sheet that has been lightly coated with nonstick spray, or place parchment paper on the baking sheet.Gently press down the dough ball, making a very slight indent with your fingers, then press in a small amount of the streusel topping.


Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges just begin to brown slightly.  Cool on racks and then enjoy!  Store in a lightly closed container.
