Banana Pudding Cookies Ingredients
Here’s what you need to make this dessert recipe. The measurements are in the recipe card below.
- White cake mix
- Banana instant pudding

Banana Cherry Cookies Directions
Get ready by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F and lining a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Sift the cake mix and the pudding mix into a large mixing bowl.
Add the eggs, oil, and vanilla extract and stir until smooth. The dough will be thick and this is normal.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Gently fold in the maraschino cherries and sprinkles.
Scoop out tablespoon-sized dough balls. Each ball of dough should be about the size of a golf ball.
Place the dough onto a baking sheet about 2-3 inches apart.
Bake for 10-13 minutes.
Let the banana split cookies cool for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.
