Recipe #53: Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are my very favorite and thanks to the wonder that is Pinterest I have a brand new source of new recipes, which is where I found this recipe. As soon as I saw that the recipe has vanilla pudding powder in the mix I knew it was going to be good. That is a sure sign that a cookie recipe will taste amazing!


  • 4 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 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
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). 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 and baking soda. Stir in the chocolate chips, trying to spread evenly through cookie dough. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Edges should be golden brown.

I liked that this made a massive amount of cookies. Something like 4 dozen cookies. I don’t like to mess around with little cookie recipes that only make 12 or so cookies because in my house 12 or so cookies will only last 12 or so hours. The only change I made to the recipe was adding white chocolate chips instead of using all chocolate. The cookies taste a lot like another cookie recipe I use that also has pudding powder in it. There are some recipes that don’t double well and the recipe I had been using is one of those, so I like that these cookies taste the same, but that the recipe produces such a large batch.

Will these cookies grace my table again? I think they might be a new favorite!

    Well really. What is the point of making just 12 cookies??!! Such a waste. Unless a receipe fills 2 ice cream pails, it’s really not worth it! You need to find me a really good meatloaf receipe. i’m not truly a meatloaf fan, but a gooder may sway me. (and its easy and fast to make)
