If I could only eat one dessert for the rest of my life it would be these cookies. They are THAT good! I have been making these cookies for years and everyone always asks for the recipe. I am always reluctant to give out my “secret” recipe even though I didn’t even come up with it on my own. The thing that makes them so delicious, so soft and so amazing is the vanilla pudding. I don’t know how it does it but it’s like…magic!
1 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 3.4oz box instant vanilla pudding
1T vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 1/4 cups flour
1t baking powder
1t baking soda
2 cups chocolate chips
First, cream together the butter and sugars in a large mixing bowl.
Then, add the magic powder aka vanilla pudding.
Next, beat in eggs and vanilla.
After that, stir in the dry ingredients.
Finally, pour in the chocolate chips.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-11 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet or until slightly golden brown.
The recipe will make approximately three dozen cookies so if you are like me and can eat a dozen in one sitting or want to be able to freeze some for a midnight snack at a later date then you might want to double the recipe. Give them a try…I doubt you will go back to your old recipe. Happy baking!
