These lemon pudding cookies are so soft and chewy they practically melt in your mouth! The pudding mix brings the extra chewiness and the combination of lemon zest, lemon juice and lemon pudding mix gives them the perfect lemon flavor!!
Whisk together flour, baking soda, pudding mix and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.
Cream together butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric stand mixer with the paddle attachment until light and fluffy. Add eggs, lemon zest, and lemon juice, and beat until well combined.
Slowly add the flour mixture, beating until just combined after each addition.
Refrigerate dough at least 4 hours. To achieve the height of the cookies pictured, I actually rolled them into 1-inch balls, froze the dough balls for approximately 20 minutes and then baked them.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake 8-10 minutes or until the edges have started to lightly brown and the tops are set. [If you freeze the dough it will take several more minutes to cook –just watch them!]
