  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 3.4 oz vanilla pudding
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups chocolate chips I use milk chocolate…always!! But my mom uses semi-sweet. I say go sweet or go home:) But that is your own choice.

Preheat oven to 350
Cream together butter, sugar, and brown sugar
add vanilla pudding mix…dry…just dump it right in.
add eggs and vanilla and mix thoroughly
mix in flower and baking soda
stir in chocolate chips
drop by rounded spoonful onto an ungreased baking sheet
bake for 10-12 mins or until JUST the edges are light golden brown. Don't overbake. They will be puffed up, but after you remove them from the heat, they will settle into the PERFECT GOOEY cookie.
