So here is the recipe using pudding. Have a little fun with it.
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cups brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 (4 serving) package instant chocolate pudding
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cups (12 oz) chocolate chips
Sift together flour and baking soda.
Cream together butter, sugars, vanilla and pudding mix. Beat in eggs. Gradually add flour mixture. Stir in chips.
Drop spoonfuls about 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet.
Bake for 8 minutes.
Note: I have tried cream cheese pudding with cranberries and walnuts for a delicious fall cookie. I have also tried this cookie recipe with lemon pudding and no chips. (I couldn't think of what to add with lemon.) Both were very delicious. I'd love to hear what combinations you've tried.
