Serving Size: 1 (46 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 30
"This is a good, simple cookie recipe. They were very soft the day I made them but now they are dry and crunchy. Though they still taste good! I used semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate ones. I also found these cookies to be very sweet."
"These are the best Chocolate Chip cookies I've ever tried! I made one little change to the recipe ~ I used 1/2 c butter and 1/2 c shortening instead of 1 c butter. Yum, yum, yum!"
"this was a very delicious recipe. The pudding was a very different twist yet very effective. The only change I would make is use only half the amount of chocolate chips and 3/4 of the walnuts because a lot of them didin't sitck to the batter while mixing. I ended up having to take out many of the chips and walnuts to be able to keep them together for the oven."
"Great recipe.. I can never get my cookies to turn out so moist and fluffy.. THey are delicious.. The pudding must be some of the trick!"
"Seariously, this is the best cookie I have ever made or tasted!!! They cook very quickly, so be vigilant!"
"husband thought these were the grandest cookies of them all"
"These are the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever tasted! I will never make another recipe again."
"I have made this recipe 4 times now and they have turned out perfectly every time. Thanks for posting this recipe!"
"OMG!! i love these cookies made them numerous times. Then I thought I would get creative I used banana pudding and the walnuts yum then I tried lemon pudding with 5t poppyseeds, I also added 2T flour to replace the nuts they are to die for. I am looking for the limeted time( seasonal) pumpkin pudding to try to make pumpkin chocolate chip. I think the combinations are endless. Thank you for posting such a wonderful recipe."
"Excellent they were a big hit in my house and I myself loved them and they were still soft the next day best recipe by far"
"I wanted a non-dairy recipe, so I substituted shortening for the butter. Not a good idea. The cookies came out chewy, but not quite soft once they became cool. I would say that they are alright, but not amazing. I think that the substitution wasn't a good idea, but generally, I think I'm going to look for a recipe with more brown sugar content, or preferably molasses."
"I have been using this recipe for years...Best Chocolate Chip Cookies ever....I put a rolo candy peice in the center of my dough and then bake. Good"
"Wow are these good! Just as you said soft & chewy. Like others I added 1/2 tsp of salt, I also used mini chips (all I had) but it seemed like there was more chips using them. I used my cookie scoop and ended up with nice, fat, round cookies -- beautiful. They took about 14 minutes but I have a screwy oven, I just had to watch after 10 mins. I was hoping to see how they held up (if they stayed as nice as they baked up) but no chance there, they just didn't last that long! Great recipe, my go to from now on. Thank you! Smiles -- Nina"
"I always turn to this recipe whenever I'm preparing a care package. The cookies stay softer so much longer than my usual recipe. (My husband isn't very fond of the pudding flavor, which is why I don't use this recipe all the time.) It is also fun to use M&M's instead of chocolate chips if they are for a party."
"Taste-tested, hubby approved! These are hand-down the softest, moistest, most delicious cookie recipe - and I'm going to trade chips for thumbprint jelly cookies today! Merry Christmas!"
"flavor was good but the cookies fluffed up when baking and then flattened out and became sticky<br/>when taken out. Maybe it's me but something went wrong."
"My nephew is visiting and needed something for a party he was going to and picked this recipe out from all the others I'd saved. Made two batches, one with vanilla pudding and chocolate chips and one with chocolate pudding and white chocolate chips. They are both great. Left out the nuts as I don't send those to parties with kids for fear of possible allergies but bet they'd be even better with them. Will are soft, chewy and delicious."
"These were like cake cookies, not chewy"
