I used the above recipe — following it pretty much exactly. The only reason I’m writing the recipe out is in case the post is deleted.
Pudding Cookies (makes about 3 dozen)
3/4 cup of unsalted butter (1.5 sticks)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 (3.4 oz) package of instant vanilla pudding
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
2.25 cups flour
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Stir together flour and baking soda (set aside).
In a large bowl cream together butter and sugar.
Add in pudding package and continue mixing.
Add eggs and vanilla.
Slowly add in flour and mix until well blended.
Add in chocolate chips.
Roll into 1″ balls and place on greased cookie sheet. I recommend flattening the balls as they don’t flatten very well on their own.
Bake for 8-12 mins.
The dough gets very hard if left in the fridge, so I don’t recommend leaving in the fridge for very long. Overall the recipe tastes good. Not exactly what I was looking for (ie not the perfect chocolate chip cookie in my opinion). It seems a little heavy to me. However, I do love that the cookies were moist and remained moist even after I left them on a cookie sheet in the open air over night. 🙂
