Did you know yesterday was National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day? Apparently everything gets its’ day. So you know, I had to SACRIFICE and make a batch, since it was that day and all. 😉 Of course I had two three-year-olds at my house, so they happily went along with the plan.
I found this recipe on Pinterest, it was really simple and delicious. The cookies were so soft and fluffy, I’m embarrassed to say they are almost all gone. Of course I only ate a few, I DID have two three-year-olds here. And some hungry men in the family. I used French Vanilla instant pudding, but I think it would be fun to play around with different flavors, see what you can come up with!
Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies
Recipe from Two Peas & Their Pod
2 sticks butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white granulated sugar
1 3.4 oz. package instant pudding mix, I used French Vanilla
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In the bowl of a mixer, cream together the butter and sugars. Add in the eggs, vanilla and pudding mix.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to those in the mixer and mix until well-incorporated. Add in the chocolate chips, mix well and drop by rounded spoonfuls onto a cookie pan covered with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
Bake 10-12 minutes, and allow to cool on a wire rack.
