BEST CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
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. 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
These are the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made. They are our new family favorite go to recipe for a great chocolate chip cookie.
- 3/4 cup salted butter
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 eggs
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 3.4 oz package of instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1-2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Microwave the butter for about 40 seconds to just barely melt it.
Using a mixer, beat the butter with the sugars until creamy.
Add eggs and vanilla and beat on low speed until just incorporated.
Add the flour, instant pudding, baking soda, and salt mixing together.
Add the chocolate chips and mix just enough to spread the chocolate chips out in the dough.
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 for 10-12 minutes until the cookies look puffy and dry and just barely golden. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Overbaking will make the cookies so they are not soft. Pull them out when the cookies are pale and puffy.
Let them cool on the pan for several minutes before placing on a cooking rack.
Store in an airtight container. These cookies also freeze well.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
I would love for you to try these out and add your own vote as to whether they are your new favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies!! Better stock up on some ice cold milk!!
