Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

I have had a life-long struggle with chocolate chip cookies. The dough is too sticky or too dry. The end result is flat, crunchy, and tastes too much like flour. We have all seen it, and weve all tried the recipe on the back of the bag of chocolate chips and ended up with a "meh" result. Well, I am here to put an end to your sadness.

Holly, over at Life As A Lofthouse is absolutely amazing. This recipe is hers. These cookies are soft, chewy, and cake-like. The secret ingredient? Pudding! Yes, you heard me correctly. Dont knock it until you try it. 

1 cup (2 sticks) Butter, softened
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup White Sugar
1 small pkg Instant Vanilla Pudding mix
2 eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 1/4 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 pkg ( 12 oz) Milk Chocolate Chips

DIRECTIONS:  Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat the butter, both sugars, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat until creamy and fluffy. Then slowly mix in flour and baking soda. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by tablespoonfuls, onto an un-greased cookie sheet. Bake for ONLY 9-10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool about 10 minutes before eating. 

One thing I LOVE about this recipe is that you dont remove the cookies from the sheet. No smooshing those beauties. Wait until they are cool and then remove them. Unlike most cookie recipies, if you leave these on the pan they dont get dried out or overcooked. Perfection every time! If you love this recipe, make sure you visit Hollys main page via the link above. Shes seriously an amazing cook!
