With four cookie recipes on my to-bake list, these chocolate pudding cookies were up first. I have never made a cookie recipe that uses so much butter, but this recipe produces so many cookies that it all evens out in the end. I think it ended up making 80+ cookies! Like the Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip "Crack" Cookies, this recipe also uses a form of pudding - instant chocolate pudding mix. The pudding mix makes the cookies soft and moist, which is always a bonus in my book.
2 cups butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
6.8 oz instant chocolate pudding mix
1 tsp vanilla
4 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
With an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugars.
Beat in the pudding mix.
Add in the eggs and vanilla beat until well mixed.
Mix in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Then mix in the chocolate chips.
Drop a heaping tablespoonful of batter onto the cookie sheets for each cookie.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until the cookies are set in the middle.
