I love getting tried and true recipes from people because I know they will always be fantastic, and I was lucky enough to get a delicious cookies recipe from my friend, Nell. She says that one of her friends calls these cookies "Crack Cookies", and I can now see why. I think I ate at least 10 of them today. I've never made cookies with pudding before, but I really like the cake-like, moist texture it gives the cookies.
Caution: These cookies are dangerous and should only be made if you are willing to eat at least half a dozen per day. Make at your own risk.
(Oh, and I would definitely recommend adding 2 tsp of cinnamon for an added kick. I will make sure to do this next time I make these treats.)
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 cups quaker oats
2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup vanilla pudding
Preheat your oven to 375°F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
With an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugars.
Add in the eggs and vanilla beat until well mixed.
Mix in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Then mix in the Quaker oats and chocolate chips. Finally, add the pudding and mix until combined.
Drop a heaping tablespoonful of batter onto the cookie sheets for each cookie.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until the cookies begin to brown around the edges.
