Want a light, fluffy cookie loaded with flavor and soft chocolate chips.. yeah, me too! This super quick recipe is sure to please and easily adaptable to make double chocolate pudding chocolate chip cookies too . . .
This is one of my favorite quickie cookie recipes and it’s rather versatile. If you want a Double Chocolate Chip cookie, use chocolate pudding mix instead of Vanilla. If you’d like a Banana Nut Cookie, use a small package of Banana instant pudding mix and add 1 cup of finely chopped walnuts. These cookies are very soft and chewy with lots of flavor.
1 cup (2 sticks) Butter, softened
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup White Sugar
1 small pkg Instant Vanilla Pudding mix
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 1/4 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 pkg ( 12 oz) Milk Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium size bowl beat the butter, both sugars, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla together until creamy and fluffy. Add the flour and baking soda, mixing well. Stir in chocolate chips and up to 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts if desired.
Drop by tablespoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet. We actually use a cookie dough scoop to make perfectly even cookies.
Bake for ONLY 11 minutes. Remove from oven, allow to cool about 10 minutes before transferring from cookie sheet.
