Chocolate Chip Cookies

Friday, January 16, 2009

I decided to try out a new cookie recipe so I went to I love that site because everyone rates recipes and sometimes recommends variations. Everyone gave this recipe high reviews so I decided to try it out and they really were as good as everyone said they were. I halved the recipe because even though I may want to eat 6 doz. cookies, I really shouldn't. :) Here's the link if you want to try them yourself:

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies
by Debbi Borsick

  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 (3.4 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1-1/3 cups and 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sift together the flour and baking soda, set aside.
  2. 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 mixture. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips and nuts. Drop cookies by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Edges should be golden brown.
* The only thing I did differently was to use margarine instead of butter and add butterscotch chips. Yum. Just thinking about them makes me want to bake some.
