These cookies melt in your mouth. The pudding makes the texture so smooth and delicious. It's funny, these cookies were originally suppossed to be made with vanilla pudding, but I made a mistake and put in chocolate pudding and they were wonderful! If you're in the mood for chocolate then makes sure to use chocolate pudding instead of vanilla!
- 1 cup margarine or 1 cup butter
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 (3 ounce) package vanilla instant pudding mix or 1 (3 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 1⁄4 cups flour
- 1 cup chocolate chips (more or less to taste)
- 1 cup nuts (optional)
- Mix flour and baking soda and set aside.
- Then combine margarine, sugars, vanilla, and pudding mix in a large mixing bowl and beat until smooth and creamy.
- Beat in eggs.
- Gradually add flour mixture.
- Then stir in chips (batter will be stiff).
- Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls on ungreased baking sheet.
- (it works well to roll dough in ball and slightly flatten).
- Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes.
Not such a fan. Gave it 3 stars cause afterall, they are chocolate chip cookies. However, I will not be making these again. They aren't the cookie texture I was looking for. These are light, airy and fluffy. I like my cookies more dense and heavy. Thanks for posting and sharing anyway
These were GREAT! I did however, alter the recipe a tiny bit to make it a reduced-fat recipe and vegan. I subbed a 1/3 c. of the margarine for unsweetened applesauce, replaced both eggs w/ an equivalent amount of egg replacer, and added in crushed peppermints instead of the nuts. The mix made roughly a couple dozen cookies that disappeared almost immediately after being removed from the oven!
Yield: 48 medium sized cookies. I'm on the fence with these cookies! I gave this 4 stars because this recipe delivered everything it said it would in that the cookies were very moist. I followed the recipe exactly (I used an entire 12 oz pkg of white choc chips, chocolate fudge pudding mix, and I put chopped walnuts in). I also did as suggested and made this into balls and gently pushed on them before cooking the recommended 8 minutes. They came out of the oven smelling and looking great! They are moist on the inside with and nice texture to them. My only issue with these cookies is that I felt they were lacking in taste. I'm not sure if this is from the chocolate pudding or what. Don't get me wrong... these taste good, I guess from the looks and smell of them I just expected more flavor. I am going to make these again using regular choc chips and the vanilla pudding.
