READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

I think it's the addition of the vanilla pudding mix that makes these so good!

Well oh well...no surprise here a TRUE hit! My DS wants me to give you 100 stars. He walked in the door at 10:00 and grabbed 3 right off the bat and wanted to grab 3 more before I slapped his hand away. Because I don't know how to read I purchased the wrong type of "vanilla" pudding so opted to use "instant chocolate pudding". Kit the flavor of chocolate pudding with the chocolate chips & then to top off the cookie the flavors of cinnamon and nutmeg in the background! Wow a TERRIFIC cookie flavor! Nice soft texture to the cookie - all pans baked in exactly 10 minutes. I received 54 cookies using a standard cookie scoop and flattening with the glass. So glad I tagged you in the Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup game. Thanks Kitten!! :)
