Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies
This recipe is for anyone that likes cold cookies, my husband for one. The cookie stays soft, but the chips are hard. Now, you don’t have to put them in the frig, but I have to say, they are delicious that way. Try it and see what you say.
- 2 cups butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 (3.4-oz.) pkg. instant vanilla pudding mix
- 4 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 2 cups chopped nuts, opt.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, brown sugar and white sugar. Beat in the pudding mix until blended. Mix in eggs and vanilla. Add flour and baking soda until blended. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts, if using.
Using a cookie scoop, drop cookies onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Edges should be golden brown.
Makes 6 dozen cookies.
