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 above photo and thought, why not put a quick post together.
Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies
- 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
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.
