- 4 3/4 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 2 cups butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 (3.4 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix
- 4 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sift together the flour and baking soda, set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar. (I usually soften butter in microwave first.)
- Beat in the instant pudding mix until blended. Stir in the eggs and vanilla.
- Blend in the flour mixture.
- Stir in the semisweet chocolate chips, trying to spread evenly through cookie dough.
- Make balls of cookie dough, about 1 inch in diameter.
- Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Edges should be golden brown.
How long you keep them in the oven will depend on the type of oven that you have and how done you like your cookies. I kept mine in for 13 minutes. Remember, cookies will continue to cook on the inside even after you pull them out of the oven. So if you like them chewy, pull them out when they are not quite done yet. Of course if I had it my way, I would just eat the dough raw. Yeah, yeah, yeah….I can hear all y’all out there saying, “You can get salmonella.” Well in all of my 23 (almost 24 on June 23) years of life, I have eaten raw dough and I still haven’t come down with the plague or any issues that have killed me.
This is a great and fun recipe to do with your children as well. With all this crazy weather that we have been having, if you find yourself stuck in the house due to heavy rain, extreme heat, or crazy fast wind, make some cookies with the kiddos. My suggestion: put the pudding powder in a bag. Give it to them and tell them that it was given to you by a superhero and that you have magic in a bag. Tell them that if they put the magic in the cookies they will have super awesome super powers. I will leave it up to you what super powers you want to give to your children, but at least it would be fun!
Also another bit of news. I am getting married! May 31, 2014 is my and my fiance’s wedding date! That’s right! Check out the ring!
I plan to totally have a Pinterest-inspired wedding, as I am sure that all weddings are Pinterest-inspired now. Expect some arts and crafts in the coming months that are related to my wedding! I wish I could invite every single one of my readers, but alas, I have to keep it to a minimum number of guests.
I also want to give a shout out to Elizabeth! I have been working with Elizabeth with a mutual client for quite some time and she happened to look at my key fob. My key fob has Sigma Kappa on it. She and I then freaked out and we did our thing to prove to each other that we are both Sigmas and it was glorious. Remember ladies, it always pays to carry something on you with Sigma Kappa on it. You never know, you may be working with a sister for months at a time! As always, ladies! What recipes do you use all the time and swear you will never use or eat another thing like it unless it is your recipe? Have you tried this recipe? Please…tell me what you think. I look forward to hearing your questions or comments! As always, LISK!
