these were really good! i used a white chocolate pudding mix and put chocolate chips in the cookies. they turned out really soft and chewy and stayed that way all week.
Yummy! I used only 3/4 cup of butter (hate greasy cookies) and then halfway through couldn't find the box of chocolate pudding I was SURE was in the pantry. I had to use 1/4 cup of Stephens cocoa mix instead. They were wonderful anyway, despite all my fiddling. Husband loved them. I'll definitely have to try these again after I buy another box of pudding.
