Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

A fellow blogger posted this recipe as a tribute to her blogging friend that recently passed away. I loved her story so I wanted to give her recipe a try. Please visit Monica at Lick the Bowl Good and read all about Jeanette.

I love cookies and we so enjoyed this recipe. The cookies are softer in texture but oh so yummy! They didn't last anytime in my cookie jar!

  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 (3.4 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sift together the flour and baking soda, set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Beat in the instant pudding mix until blended. Stir in the eggs and vanilla. Blend in the flour mixture. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips and nuts.

Drop cookies by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Edges should be golden brown.

Makes approx. 3 dozen.

NOTE: I used a medium scoop to portion out the cookie dough. I got 32 cookies and baked them for abput 10 minutes on a Silpat liner.
