Chocolate Chip PUDDING Cookies...

The last few times I made chocolate chip cookies they came out flat.  Now, I like them flat and crispy but most people enjoy a fluffy chocolate chip cookie.  And you want them looking pretty when serving them on a tray for guests or giving away as gifts to friends.  I have been searching for a way to make chocolate chip cookies look "pretty" again AND still taste delicious.  The secret I found is to add vanilla pudding mix to the batter.

Some recipes call for a whole box of vanilla pudding mix, but this recipe just calls for a few tablespoons. The cookies were amazing and they looked beautiful when I took them out of the oven.  I used my phone to take the below photo...






Chocolate Chip PUDDING Cookies
(Recipe from Picky Palate)



Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulate sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 Tablespoons Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips

Directions:

In a bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda and pudding mix together; set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, cream  your butter and the sugars until combined.
Add the egg and vanilla and combine well.
Add the flour mixture to the butter/sugar mixture and combine well.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Scoop the cookie dough out onto parchment lined cookie sheets.
Bake 10 - 12 minutes in a 350 degree preheated oven or until the cookies are slightly browned.
Let cool on the cookie sheets for about 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.


Ready for the oven...


They came out perfect...


The recipe does not make many cookies so I would definitely double the recipe the 
next time I'm baking chocolate chip cookies.  

This really is a delicious and EASY recipe.  
Your cookies will never be flat again...or at least mine won't be flat again.

  4. As I prefer mine flat and crispy on the outside and chewy in the inside, I am wondering how 3 Tbs of vanilla pudding could change things so much. I'm gonna find out! Thanks.
