Moist, chewy and delicious Pomegranate Cookies!

As cliched as it sounds, every time I make these pomegranate cookies, they are gone as quickly as they are made. With a soft, buttery, and chewy dough made with vanilla pudding mix, and plenty of pomegranate seeds, white chocolate chips and pecans- it’s no wonder these Pomegranate White Chocolate Cookies with Pecans are so hard to resist!

These pomegranate cookies are great for the holidays, or just for a night when you’re jonesing for a REALLY GOOD cookie.

White Chocolate Chip Cookies

What goes into the cookies?

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened to room temperature.
  • Organic cane sugar, or granulated sugar.
  • Light brown sugar.
  • Pure vanilla extract.
  • All-purpose flour.
  • Baking soda.
  • Salt.
  • A box of vanilla pudding mix. This is key to extra moist and chewy cookies!
  • Fresh pomegranate seeds.
  • White chocolate chips.
  • Chopped pecans.

Prepping the cookies

The dough for these pomegranate cookies comes together very easily with a hand mixer. Simply cream the sugars and butter with vanilla, then add the dry ingredients and mix-ins.

Note: The cookie dough will seem a bit dry. Never fear- after a few hours (or overnight for best results) it will be plenty moist and easily formed.

Baking the Pomegranate cookies

Once the dough has rested a few hours to overnight, it’s time to bake ’em up! Roll the pomegranate cookies with your hands (about a tbsp each) and transfer to parchment lined baking sheets.

Bake for 12-14 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven until lightly browned and crisp.

Transfer to wire racks to cool, and try and resist the urge to shove flaming hot cookies in your mouth. Bask in the smell of your cookie-perfumed home.
