These soft & chewy fruity pebble cookies are loaded with fruity pebbles and creamy white chocolate chips. These are such a fun cookie, that you guys are going to LOVE these cookies.
I absolutely love fruity pebble waffles, so making a fruity pebble cookie was a no brainer. Oddly enough, I never ate fruity pebbles as a kid. I didn’t really start eating them until I was much older. But either way, I love them and they make the perfect, fun cookie!
Soft and Chewy Fruity Pebble Cookies
And before you ask… no, no I wasn’t “high” when I made these cookies lol. They are inspired by a cookie shop called Baking’ Babes in Tampa, Florida. I put my own spin on them and decided to add white chocolate chips to them. And man, I’m glad I did. They are so good.
Growing up, I absolutely LOVED sugar cookies. They were and still are one of my favorite cookies. Mostly because I didn’t like chocolate as a kid. So sugar cookies were my jam. Like Pillsbury cookies, I could eat 7 in one sitting lol. It’s taken me a while to finally perfect my cookie base recipe. But I finally got it. And yes, this recipe calls for chill time. I know I know, but it’s so worth it.

Tips to make the best Fruity Pebble Cookies
- for crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside cookies, slightly underbake the cookies. They will continue cooking as they cool.
- I like to bake my cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- When mixing dry ingredients, I recommend stirring with a spoon to prevent over mixing.
- I like adding a little cornstarch to my cookie dough. It is a thickener but it made the cookies crisp on the edges and doughy in the center.
