This is one of the most amazing cookies you will ever eat. So chewy and soft. I’ve made thousands of these over the past 10 years. No joke. My son used to have a cookie stand at the end of our drive way and I would make at least 200 of these each time. My co-workers love these cookies as well. Everyone runs for the cookie jar when I bring it in just so they don’t miss out.
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 pkg instant vanilla pudding mix
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sift together the flour and baking soda, set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Beat in the instant pudding mix powder until blended. Stir in the eggs and vanilla. Blend in the flour mixture. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips. I like to use an ice cream scoop to measure out the dough. Drop onto parchment paper covered cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Edges should be golden brown.
