Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies FROM THE FRESHMAN COOK

2 teaspoons baking soda
2 cups butter, softened
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 (3.4 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 cups milk chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Sift together the flour and baking soda, set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar.
  3. Beat in the instant pudding mix until blended. Stir in the eggs and vanilla.
  4. Blend in the flour mixture.
  5. Stir in the milk chocolate chips, trying to spread evenly through cookie dough.
  6. Make balls of cookie dough, about 1 inch in diameter.
  7. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Edges should be golden brown.
MY NOTES: I HALVED THIS RECIPE AND STILL MADE 3 DOZEN AND I USED SEMI SWEET CHIPS.

I remember the first time I tasted cookies with pudding in them. It was when I was a girl scout and my troop leader brought some in for a meeting. They were so moist and perfectly puffy! Thank you for reminding me how wonderful this "secret ingredient" is!
