1package banana flavored instant pudding mix, 2 tablespoons reserved for the frosting (see below)5.1 ounce package
optional: 1 cup white chocolate chips, 1 cup crushed walnuts
2tablespoonsdry instant banana pudding mix
In a large mixing bowl whip together the butter and white sugar and brown sugar with an electric mixer, until light and fluffy.
Add in vanilla, baking soda, baking powder, eggs and beat until mixed. Add the dry pudding mix and flour to the mix and stir until just combined. If adding white chocolate chips or nuts, do so now.
Divide the dough into 6 equal portions and form into balls. (They will be big!) Place dough balls on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 350° F degrees for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are just turning brown.
Allow cookies to cool on the pan for about 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
While the cookies are cooling on the rack, use an electric mixer to whip together butter, remaining pudding mix, and powdered sugar until light and fluffy. Ad a splash of milk or water as needed to reach your desired consistency.
Transfer to a piping bag with a large tip (1m is what we prefer) and pipe the frosting in a spiral pattern beginning on the outer edge and ending in the middle.
Crush three of the vanilla wafers and sprinkle the crumbs over the icing before it sets. Place one of the remaining wafers upright in the center of each cookie. (If you added nuts, sprinkle some crushed nuts on top as well).
