1 1/2 sticks (or 3/4 cup) butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 (3.4 oz) package instant vanilla pudding
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
2-1/4 cups flour
1-2 cups chocolate chips (or whatever add in you would like)
Preheat oven to 350 F. Stir together flour and baking soda and set aside. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars together. Add in pudding package and beat until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla. Add flour mixture slowly until well incorporated. Add chocolate chips or whatever add-in you choose. Roll into 1″ balls and place on greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 F for 8-12 minutes.
Don't worry if you get a little messy.
Well, these were easy and they turned out great, but I certainly couldn't tell a difference due to the pudding. I don't usually keep pudding on hand so I'll probably just stick to my other chocolate chip cookie recipes.
