So…you can tell what kind of a week I have been having by the posts I share. This week has been a tough one for a few different reasons. Like I mentioned before, I fell off the food allergy wagon…but I picked myself up off the ground, dusted myself off, and am working on climbing back on. I was also sick yesterday, which is why there was no post. I spent my working time in bed asleep!
In my self pity I decided to try a recipe I had been given from my friend Stacy who swears that these are THE. BEST. CHOCOLATE. CHIP. COOKIES. EVER! Since I was already off the bandwagon, I thought…why not take the challenge and see if these cookies really are the best chocolate chip cookies.
And since my daughter has been wanting to bake goodies for my blog, it was the perfect recipe for her to bake up. You guys…these are good and dare I say it…one of the best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipes I have tried. I think they are my new favorite…now I just need one of you smarties out there to turn this recipe into a gluten free version since I am getting back on the allergy bandwagon.
Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
3/4 cup unsalted butter (at room temperature)
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups flour
one (3.4 oz.) package of instant vanilla pudding mix
1 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
1-2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (according to your chocolate needs)
- Cream together butter and sugars till smooth.
- Add in egg and beat well.
- Add the rest of the ingredients one by one and mix well.
- Fold in chocolate chips.
- Scoop into balls on a greased cookie sheet. I like to use a medium ice cream scoop so the cookies come out the same size.
- Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.
