Chocolate Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

(Makes approx. 2 dozen)

1 4 oz. pkg. instant chocolate pudding

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 stick unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 egg white

1/2 tsp vanilla

1 pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. In a small bowl, stir together pudding mix, flour, cocoa powder and salt.  Set aside.  

3. With an electric mixer, blend butter until whipped.  Add brown sugar and blend until creamy.  

4. Add egg, egg white and vanilla and continue to blend (batter might look runny).  

5. Slowly add dry ingredients and blend until just combined.  Stir in chocolate chips.

6. Place by rounded spoonful on parchment-lined baking sheet (I flattened mine with the bottom of a glass, otherwise they come out puffy).  

7. Bake for 10 minutes.
