Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies

What you need:

1 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 package of cheesecake instant pudding mix (3-4oz box)
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups homemade chocolate chips

What to do:

Preheat your oven to 350F

Using a stand mixer (I love my kitchen-aid), beat together the butter and both sugars until creamy.

Add in eggs, &; vanilla extract.

In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, and salt and pudding mix. 

While the mixer is running, slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.

Continue to mix until combined.
Remove the bowl from the stand mixer and use a spoon or spatula and gently stir in your chocolate chips.

Using a small/medium scoop or a spoon, gather cookie dough into balls and place them onto a metal baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.  Bake for 10-12 minutes. Everyone's idea of what a "done cookie" is different so you be the judge on if they look ready. :) I let these come out a little gooey and cool.

 Remove cookies from oven and let cool on baking sheet for a few minutes and then transfer then to a cooling rack to cool completely.
