I pinned this on Pinterest a while ago and I've been thinking about it ever since. While I was in school I didn't have a lot of time for baking (sadly for me, not for my waistline), but as soon as the semester was over and my parents had left and I had time to breathe (deep inhale and exhale) I baked these cookies!
This recipe was slightly altered from the recipe on Sunday Baker. You can read the original recipe there, which is double this recipe here, as well as see other awesome recipes for yummy foods!
2 1/4 c. All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
3/4 c. Butter, softened
3/4 c. Brown Sugar, packed
1/4 c. White Sugar
1 (3.9 oz) package of chocolate instant pudding (the original recipe calls for vanilla, I used chocolate, you could probably use anything)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. of whatever yummy things you'd like to throw in (I used chopped walnuts and Ghiradelli bittersweet chocolate morsels)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together flour and baking soda, set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar.
Beat in pudding mix until it is well blended.
Stir in eggs and vanilla.
After it is well blended slowly mix in the flour mixture.
Stir in your yummy things (chocolate chips and the like).
Place cookies 2 in. apart on parchment lined cookie sheet, bake for 8-12 minutes or until golden.
DEVOUR and hide from your significant other.
I'm kind of a messy baker when it comes to putting the dough on the sheet. My cookies are usually funny sizes and shapes, some much much bigger than the others. This was the first time I tried to make them all the size they are supposed to be. It was worth the effort! They look better and they baked more evenly. I don't have a little cookie/melon scoop, so I just used a Tablespoon and a really small rubber scraper to get the dough out. Worked like a charm!
Be forewarned, if you make this with the chocolate pudding mix it is very, very chocolatey! Especially if you add in chocolate chips later ;) you're going to need one of these!
