Questions & Replies

  1. Does this recipe freeze well or store in the fridge ok?


  1. Pretty good, honestly i'm not a cookie person, these are for my teen sons. So I was 1/2 done putting the recipe together and realized I didn't have "Instant vanilla pudding" so I used Dr Oetker vanilla mousse with a sprinkle of Shiriff cooked vanilla pudding. It worked out well but they came out pretty thin even though I put tons of dough per cookie. Regardless they're good, but I think I'd honestly prefer them with no pudding mix, but the kids are loving these so I'd say they're a win ??
  2. I gave these 3 stars, not because they aren't good, but because they were just OK. I took them to a church event and there was an overwhelming consensus that they all preferred the classic chocolate chip cookie without the instant pudding. I think that the cookie is good, but because it's different than what most are used to, it can disappoint when people are expecting the classic.
  3. I absolutely love these cookies I make them for every Family event we attend and needless to say everyone wants the recipe.....Anyone that doesn't love these cookies are just Ridiculous. I also use this cookie batter for all my cookies, that's just how much I love it! Awesome cookies plain and simple. I also love that fact that it makes a large amount of cookies in one shot!
  4. Well no Wonder these are award winning cookies! They win THE Best Chocolate Chip Cookie I have ever eaten or made! Easy, and fun to make. And yes, it makes a HUGE batch! Which I love. I used one of those melon ballers to make my cookies, so they are a perfect 11 minutes they came out Perfect! A sure keeper in my Favorite Recipes Journal !! :o) Thanks Sara!!
  5. A unique twist on the standard choco-chip cookie. Not sure what the vanilla pudding mix does...but it does lend a nice vanilla=y taste. f:-)


  1. Just used instant vanilla mousse and a bit of cooked vanilla pudding powder bc I didn't have instant pudding.
